***** AISS (available on OS4 Depot) is required to use this program *****

"A-FTP Server" is another one of my 'bloated' programs made with Hollywood 9.0
(also MUI-Royale); I hope you like it!

What is it?
As the name implies, it is an ftp server for AmigaOS4.

Just copy the entire folder anywhere you want; and run the server from that

There are two basic ways of starting the server: 1) Through its GUI; 2) Hidden
in the background. (If you want the server to start automatically when you boot
into OS4, you probably want to add "StartHidden" to your "Prefs/WBStartup".)

Use the GUI to set up your accounts (passwords and path access). Make sure the
server is running, and you should be able to access your files through a client.
Both the Local and Exteral IP Addresses can be displayed in the GUI (just enable
the tooltypes).

This server has been confirmed to work well with the following clients:
FileZilla (Windows)---just make sure that maximum simultaneous transfers is set
to 1 (Edit/Settings/Transfers).
FireFTP (Windows/Firefox)
WinSCP (Windows)
Core FTP LE (Windows)
SmartFTP (Windows)
AndFTP (Android)
Solid Explorer (Android)
pFTP (Amiga)
Dopus5 (Amiga)---make sure to set the client to use "Passive" transfers under
the "Miscellaneous" custom settings.

*This server currently only supports passive mode (PASV) transfers.

Special thanks to:
*Andreas Falkenhahn for developing Hollywood and MUI-Royale!
*Mason for his AISS artwork and Icons.

by ChrisY).
