anonymous upload only ftp

5 posts in this topic

I've been wanting to setup an ftp server for fun for awhile now. My idea is to have my login to do whatever i want and have an anonymous login so that whomever finds my server can upload whatever they want but can't download anything. I have it setup with Bulletproof but it doesn't look like it has the option for what i want. I am running it on Windows Server 2003 R2. Does anyone know of an ftp server that has this option and likely free.

Thanks

If I remember correctly, Filezilla Server can accomplish this. I messed around with this application a few years ago and I believe it had the option to allow anonymous logons and you could customize their privileges like any other user.

You can probably do that with any ftp server; just adjust the permissions on the upload folder so that the anonymous/generic user only has write access and does not have read access. This can be done at the filesystem level, the ftp server should act accordingly.

Exactly. This is 100% correct.
