What is jftpgw
jftpgw is an FTP proxy/gateway that uses the FTP protocol (unlike those FTP proxies that fetch an FTP file but work as an http proxy). You can use it to make servers behind a firewall/NAT server (masquerading server) accessible or to allow users behind such solutions to transfer files to and from the outside of the LAN.

If you want to know more about jftpgw's abilities, please see the features page.

  • Aug 3rd: jftpgw-0.12.0 available. I shifted the version number to the left since numbering the versions with two zeroes and therefore letters at the end didn't make much sense :-) Furthermore the next version will differ a lot from this one. Maybe I'll introduce the kernel scheme, with odd and even version numbers for unstable and stable versions.
