Hi,

I have a requirement to implement a customized FTP (not SFTP) server for windows that doesn't use IIS as it's backbone. I have implemented a java solution using Apache but the other engineers want something written in .net, either c# or vb.

What I need is the equivalent of the Apache FTP server API where I can easily implement a custom FTP server that can execute code based on notifications and events, etc.

Is SecureBlackbox suitable for this and if so, where can I find some examples of this type of usage?

Thanks!

Thank you for your interest in our products.

SecureBlackbox does include FTP server components. Two components are available - TElFTPServer (lower-level component) and TElSimpleFTPServer which is more high-level as it handles sockets and filesystem access itself.

The sample for TElSimpleFTPServer is included with the evaluation package (in \Samples\C#\FTPSBlackbox\Server folder). There's no sample for TElFTPServer as it is expected to be used by experienced developers.


Sincerely yours

Thanks for the reply.

How close to the functionality of Apache FTP can I get with these components? Am I able to act on events, wrap a GUI around it, etc?

I know nothing about Apache FTP, but if you go TElFTPSServer route, you have everything under your control (it's quite low-level). In that case, though, you need to implement your own socket transport. TElSimpleFTPSClient also has events, but as it does most of the work itself, it's not as flexible as TElFTPSServer.

The name TElSimpleFTPSClient implies that its an FTP client. Is that correct or does it have server functionality as well?

again - thanks for the prompt response.

That's a typo. I've been talking about TElSimpleFTPSServer of course.

And yes - we have two different server components - for SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) and for FTP/FTPS (the one you are asking about). Above I was talking about FTP/FTPS.
