Features and Usage of FTP Server

Find out more about the features of FTP servers?


The File Transfer Protocol commonly known as FTP is a network for managing and exchanging files. It basically works on the TCP/IP network and is essentially designed on the client-server mechanism. It connects numerous users and provides distinct directory to each one of them. It has solved the problem of working with different operating systems and file names by using separate connections for data and control. It is a much faster and smoother file transfer network than the HTTP protocol.


The three most vital features of an FTP server are discussed below:




  • Security features

  • File transfer with easy resume facility

  • Customizing events



Security features



One of the most vital features of the FTP server is that it can block the unwanted systems from connecting to it. It prevents possible data theft from your computer by controlling the IP addresses. It also protects your system from harmful entries. It enables you to use particular addresses that are secured for the PC. It can even customize the IP restrictor and the key loggers and can guarantee you hassle-free system.



File transfer with easy resume facility



The FTP server possesses one of the most sophisticated file transfer mechanisms. It can transfer files which are larger in size compared to that of the HTTP protocol. It provides easy resume facility for both uploads and downloads of files. This feature facilitates the user to perform the loading task smoothly even after the loss of the Internet connection or after a technical problem. It uses the indirect file transfer mode while transferring a file.



Customizing events


There is an excellent event system embedded in the server. The event system enables you to customize events such as upload and download of files, login, connection, disconnection that run in a FTP session. You can add event notifications whenever a user tries to connect to your system. Moreover, you can also create a notification by sending an e-mail message to yourself each time someone starts downloading a file. Furthermore, the FTP server offers the facility of global configuration of events.
