Subject FTP and Tomcat
Date Thu, 09 Jan 2003 18:52:55 GMT
Craig,

Thanks. What do you mean by standard FTP server?  Is that a separate from
Tomcat?
If so, which FTP server did you use?  Is it possible to integrate that ftp
server to tomcat?
I am trying to give secure ftp access to clients after their authentication.
And I am trying to use tomcat as Request handler server providing
authentication.

Thanks

I never went any further than a thought experiment to see if it could be
done.  It also became a much less interesting problem when I remembered
that I could just set up a standard FTP server pointed at the same
directories, giving me FTP access to the files with zero effort modifying
Tomcat.
