- Install and Start CrossFTP Server (Open source, Apache License Version 2)
- Install: Click Web Start Now and open it by Java Web Start (javaws). The server will be directly installed and run. (See Figure 1)
- Configure: Click "Configure" to setup the port, max login... (See Figure 2) ATTENION: on the Linux machine, please choose a port bigger than 1024 since lower port number requires Administration right.
- Add User and directory: Click "User", "Add" a user, setup its username and password, directory, and press "Save". (See Figure 3).
- Start: Press "Start Server". That's it.
- Install and Start CrossFTP Client to test the server.(Freeware)
- Install: Click Web Start Now and open it by Java Web Start (javaws). The client will be directly installed and run.
- Connect: Fill in your FTP server's address (if on the same machine, you can use localhost, otherwise, put in the IP address, which can be checked by ipconfig), port, username and password, click connect, you won't miss it. (See Figure 4)
