• [VOICENWS] SW: FtpServer 2.0 is open source

    From VOICE News Service@1:3634/1000 to All on Wed Sep 3 02:57:21 2014

    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    From: peterDESPAM@DESPAMpmoylan.org

    The FtpServer software, formerly distributed as shareware, is now
    open-source and freeware, subject to the GPL open-source licence. The
    binaries and the sources may be obtained from


    or from Hobbes.

    (Binaries in one zip file, sources in three other zip files.)

    FtpServer is an FTP daemon for OS/2. Although an FTP daemon already
    comes supplied with OS/2, this one has more flexible control over what
    clients are allowed to do and see. Each user sees a virtual file system
    (which can be different for each user) which, through the use of
    symbolic links and visibility controls, hides the actual file system
    from the user. It is also possible to control which IP addresses are
    allowed to connect to the server.

    The included tools include a Monitor program that lets the manager see
    who is connected.
