How are FTP Clients for MassTransit Created?
MassTransit Server for Macintosh platforms can be configured to allow inbound FTP connections. Individual logins and FTP-related permissions are controlled via MassTransit's address book window.
The following procedure may be followed to add an individual FTP client:
1. From MassTransit's Address Book, click the "Add" button to create a new contact entry. The "Contact Information" window will appear.
2. Within the "Remote Login" pane, provide a unique username and password for that user.
3. From the "Entry is" pulldown, select the "Application Client" option.
4. Click on the "Security" tab to configure permissions for that user.
5. Confirm that the "accept calls from user" option is selected.
6. Select the option "Allow connection via FTP to transfer files."
Other security options controlling whether the user can send, receive, or replace files is also controlled from the "Security" tab.
MassTransit is also capable of supporting "generic" or "anonymous" FTP connections. In this configuration, users will not be required to enter a login or password, in order to exchange files with MassTransit. The procedure to support anonymous FTP logins is as follows:
1. From the MassTransit Address Book window, highlight the "Generic Clients" entry and click the "Edit button."
2. Select the "Security" tab from the Contact Information window.
3. Confirm that the "accept calls from user" option is selected.
4. Select the option "Allow connection via FTP to transfer files."
