What is changed:
Uninstaller will first uninstall service.
Relative paths are send to the client (e.g. C:\Temp\mydir becomes /mydir).
For those who are interested. The server is based on LightFTPServer by Joel Pobar (http://callvirt.net/blog/). I used icons from the SilkIcons set by Mark James. Took some FileMonitor code from SathishVJ and basically copied the PasswordHash code from Jonathan Bailey.Downloads:SimpleFTP 0.2, Simple FTP Src 0.2
I started working on a tool to copy VMWare images running on VMWare Server for Windows. The tool will stop an image if running, will gather various file info in an dir xml and copy it over FTP to a server. After the files are copied the MD5/SHA1 hashes from local and the remote FTP files are compared to make sure the data is written correctly.
But this post is not about the copy tool (will post on that one when it’s ready) but a simple FTP server. Sure there are enough servers around. I myself am very found of the Gene6 server. So why bother to write (not from scratch dough) a server? Well it’s fun to do, it’s free to use (most other feature complete servers will cost you) and it can easily be extended.
If you need a simple (free) server or like to play with C# this project may be of interrest to you. If you like a serious server I can recommend Gene6 FTP Server.
