Re: ftp User Restrictions

I'm so sorry that we don't officially support FTP service integration, so you have to try to solve it yourself.

Re: ftp User Restrictions

one problem, iam facing users perfect upload but not downloading any file.

plz help me what is the problem



Re: ftp User Restrictions

if the user can see the files, it can download. seem ftp is impossible not allow user download.

maybe you change the ftp client and test it.

Looks like you have to upload some goodies first, that's what ratio used for.

what is the problem ?


Re: ftp User Restrictions

I know it's a little old topic, but I had the same exact problem as write4saini and exactly same message. I also tried uploading couple of files (few MB) but it didn't help, until I uploaded one 100 MB file (movie clip). Only then I was able to download previously uploaded files. Maybe this will help someone.
