RE: FTP Daemon shutdown
What is the intended solution for transfering large files to
customers and other agents outside the company?
Many users have
expressed a desire for a better way to share files within the company. For a
long time, we've run an FTP service on lucy. This service was accessible to
the outside world with no restrictions on access, and no provisions for
logging user activity. FTP was a security risk, and I have shut it down
for this reason.
All hope is not
lost though - you can still upload and download files. Please have a look here on
the staff website.
The interface is
very similar to the "html ftp listing" we used to provide. You can download
files by clicking on the hyperlink to the file (as you always have been able
to). The new functionality I have introduced is the form at the top of the
page, which will allow you to upload a file. Just hit the "browse" button to
select the file, and click the "Upload" button to transfer. There is no
restriction on file types or file size.
If you have any
questions, or problems using the tool, please let me know.
