  • Configuring FTP

    Dear All Technicians / Administrators / Guru's

    I am really sorry that i may not be totally informative and my native language isn't english in which case you might find this bit less informative or feeling like not helping or what ever.

    PLEASE HELP (SOS)

    My Setup

    A Normal PC installed with Windows SBS 2003 SP2

    OS installed with AD and DNS and IIS for FTP

    ISP - > BSNL (India) Router given SmartAX MT882 with Static IP

    Aim to make my system ftp server so that i can access my system to upload / download remotely

    Used 2 LAN cards RTL8139; 1 for LAN connected to switch and 1 for BSNL (ISP) connected from the Router to Cisco VOIP to my system.

    Basically all bsnl routers connect through 192.168.1.1

    NAT is enabled but DHCP is disabled ( but my LAN CARD gets ip from bsnl through DHCP; if i configure it manually..i will not be able to access bsnl router)

    Any more info is required please let me know.

    Thanks for reading and waiting for the reply

    with humble regards

    Re: Configuring FTP

    Lots of info here, but lots still required! One NIC or TWO? Standard or Premium? What is your Firewall/Router?
    Even with all that info, I still recommend you do NOT make your SBS an FTP Server.
    It is your DC, DNS, DHCP etc and to give access you have to give it to a user defined in AD. FTP passes passwords over the Internet in plain text - and that is the password to an AD user. From there it is pretty easy for a hacker to get in and start probing.
    Use a 3rd party for file storage/FTP there are plenty of free ones on the Internet, including ones from MS...

    YMMV
    TIA

      1. 2 Nic's One for LAN and One for BSNL which connects from SmartAX MT882 -> Cisco Router VOIP -> My system 2003 SBS SP2. STANDARD -> I hope you are aksing about the CARD quality

      2. No hardware / software firewall installed not even and AV

      3. Hacking - > Please suggest a full proof system

      4. I can use free ones but we do CAD service so we dont want an 3rd person to see the images or the drawings except for us and client.

      Please let me know what has to be done further
