  • about FTP Site

    Hi ,

    We are using Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition , now we need to send some large files to our clients via ftp.

    Now we are not having a static live IP so how can i send this large file to our client , is there any third party free tool available .

    Also if suppose we purchase one static IP then how can i securly send this large file via ftp .

    Please help ...

    Are you saying that you need to send it to their ftp server? If so, then your ip doesn't matter. If they need to get it from your ftp server, then you can get an account at www.dyndns.com, create some host records (such as ftp.yourdomain.com), install one of their dyndns updaters, and give your client the host name to connect to for the ftp server.

      If you're looking for a free secure ftp server check out filezilla. http://filezilla-project.org/ It's free and supports FTPS. You can self issue a cert using the server, open the ports default:21, 990 for FTP, FTPS and PASV range if needed.

      Have your client use their FTP client for ease and support for FTPS and you're golden.

        How secure does this file have to stay? FTP isn't the most secure of protocols.
        How large is the file?
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

          FTP itself isn't secure which is why FTPS was created. It uses the same transport encryption used for HTTPS. SSL/TLS aka Transport Layer Security

            All this is conjecture at this point as we don't know if she needs to be the sender or the recipient as far as the ftp transfer is concerned.
