First you should create a shared folder and your users for that shared folder. The folder used for FTP does not need to be shared with SMB/CIFS. I do not recommend you use it with another service. It should be dedicated to FTP only.
Setting up the Shared Folder
1-Go to Access Rights Management.
2-Click on Shared Folder.
3-In the Right window click on Add.
4-Drop down the Volume and select the data drive you want to use with the share.
5-In the Name field type "Public" and then press TAB. You should see "Public/" show up in the Path field.
6-Click on Save and apply.
Setting up the Users
1-Go to Access Rights Management and click on User.
2-On the right window click on add. Fill in name, password, change shell to /bin/bash. Click on save and then apply.
3-Repeat for amount of desired users.
Giving users Privileges
1-Go to Access Rights Management and click on shared folder.
2-On the right click on the "Public" folder to highlight it.
3-Then click on Privileges.
4- For the users you created for FTP put a check mark in either "Read/Write" or "Read-only". If you want to temporarily take away access or not give access yet you can use no access.
5-Click on save.
Setting up the ProFTP Server (w/ 6 passive ports open)
1- Go to Services/FTP then on right you want to be in Settings TAB.
2- put check in enable
3- put in a Welcome Message (whatever you want)
5- put a check in passive port and make range 14100-14105
6- put a check in the Transfer log
7- leave all the other defaults alone. Click on save and then apply (it takes a bit for apply to show)
8- Now click on the Shares TAB above.
9- Click on Add.
10- Now click on the Dropdown and select your share folder (I used Public above so I will click on it).
11- Click on Save and Apply.
Now finish the instructions in the next post to do finishing touches on the passive ports.
