Binary Distribution

Download the binary distribution and unzip it. The zip file includes sample configuration files

Typical server set up : /res/conf/ftpd-typical.xml

  • Full example configuration file : /res/conf/ftpd-full.xml
  • If you want to use your own jar files, you can put those jar files in system CLASSPATH or copy those jar files in the /common/lib directory.

To run the server, go to directory and execute ftpd.bat (if Windows) or (if UNIX or Linux). In this case you need to pass the configuration file location. Usage:

ftpd [<options>] [<configuration file>]
    <options> := --default
    <configuration file> := <XML configuration file>

In case of no option, default configuration will be used.
