ftp: reliable way to transfer large amount of data over the internet

If you ever find yourself in need of transferring large amounts of data over the internet, you can set a simple ftp server in your machine. If you’re running windows, you can use FileZilla Server for Windows.

  3. Check your public ip, and configure it in ‘Passive Mode Settings’. In the ‘use the following IP’, set the public IP.
  4. Generate SSL for secure connection.
  5. Check ftp server through https://ftptest.net/.
