Following my earlier post on how to Install and configure an FTP server, this post describes on how to setup groups and users in FileZilla.
Open the FileZilla Server console by clicking on the taskbar icon.
Create a folder on one of your drives called Filezilla. Create a subfolder called clients. After the group has been added in the FileZilla console, select the group and configure it as follows
The path will be F:\Filezilla\clients\:u
:u represents to automatically select the subfolder based on the login username.
H represents the Home folder
Eg: If you create a folder as F:\Filezilla\clients\sujeeth, then the client with username ‘sujeeth’ will be automatically be mapped to that folder and it will be that login’s home folder.
To create an Alias, Click on Add and give local path. Right click on the path and select Edit aliases. So when the client login, they will see a folder called website, and when they upload the files, it will be stored in C:\autopublish
You can set the Speed Limits and IP Filter based on your requirements. After you create the group, you follow the same procedure to add the users. Any user that is member of a group will inherit all the settings of that group.
After you have setup the user, you can connect using FileZilla client on the remote machine with the following syntax
ftpes://<username>:<password>@<host IP address>/
You have to use ftpes protocol because you have configured the FileZilla Server to force explicit SSL as per my previous post
