Creating an FTP Share

Creating an FTP Share

FTP enables file transfer between two hosts that run different operating systems and employ different file structures and character sets. After a directory is shared in FTP mode, FTP clients can access the directory.

    • Super administrator
    • Administrator
  • A file system to be shared has been created.
  • At least one local authentication user has been created.


For the local authentication user whom the FTP share has been created for, you cannot create a new FTP share for this user. You can only modify the properties of FTP share of this user.
