Version 2

Version 2 was in fact developed prior to 1.7, but was discontinued before it reached beta because of design flaws. The source code is however available from

Version 3

Version 3 is the upcoming version. It has been under development for a long time, and will not go into beta before I'm satisfied with the design and the source code. It will be released under GPL, and supported by jgaa's internet under Linux, FreeBSD, Windows and Sun Solaris.

The current internal alpha version have the following features:

  1. Implementation of the traditional FTP protocol
  2. Supports the conventional UNIX "ls" list mode, with most modifier flags, including recursive dir listings spanning over physical and virtual paths.
  3. Written in C++ using STL. Compiles with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 and recent versions of GNU g++

Version 3 is based on WFDE (War FTP Daemon Engine), a full-featured, extendible C++ class library for embedded FTP server implementations.
