FTP is one of the most commonly used protocols on the internet. You must have used the protocol one time or the other without knowing. Have you downloaded stuff from the internet before? It is likely you downloaded the files through an FTP service. It is a computer to computer communication technology that is used to store files and also access files from the internet or over a network. This program combines the FTP, SFTP, and FTPS server functions to create strong encryption for file storage and access through the FTP protocol. In essence, it implements technology that makes the data transfer and user information inaccessible by third-party while using FTP service.
The primary function of this program is to create a service that allows the remote computers and users to initiate and create connections through the FTP port (21). Other functions of the program include creation to users with varying access levels on the server and set of file permissions for the files stored on the server. The program also allows the users to log in to the service and store or download files they have access to. Available options include defining the maximum number of concurrent connections to the server, management of encryption certificates, restricting host by IP address, logging functions, and many more.
