    I have set up a FTP Server on my ADSL connection. I can see it ok on my
    local network, but don't know for sure if it can be seen from the internet.

    I would be very grateful to anyone who would spend a few minutes seeing if
    they can log in.

    The IP address is

    Port 21

    Username - newsgroup

    Password - test

    Please feel free to upload and download. I think that would give it a fair

    Thanks in advance,

    It is the demo version, I have installed and played with all of thepoular
    ones, WS_FTP, Bulletproof, and so on, but Gene6 is definitely the most
    configurable and most functional. Thank you for logging in, I really do
    appreciate your help Trevor.

    Cracked versions are widely available from a variety of sources.

    If it matters to you ... ?

    Upload an download is fine using WS_FTP LE
    But it will not let me delete a file and folder that I have uploaded (ctw
    and contents). Hang on, it has gone dspite an error message.

    Tried Explorer to access - but can only see one empty file - anon.txt

    His help?
    The guy is basically accusing you of piracy. Tell him to **** off and
    mind his own business.

    Oh I don't see it that way at all Chris! It was a reasonable question, and
    the answer is reasonable too. It does seem to be the best FTP Server I have
    used. I think it will be well worth the £30'ish that the full version will
    be costing me.

    I am very grateful to everyone who helped prove that it could be accessed
    from the net.

    It wasn't. It was intrusive and none of his business.

    Many thanks to all who partook in the testing this afternoon. The server is
    now down.

    I don't see how you work that out.

    I just wondered why when there are free ftp servers like
    FileZilla server available out there if he had bought it or he
    was just trying it out.

    I wasn't accusing him of piracy.

    You're right though it was none of my business.

    Many thanks to all who partook in the testing this afternoon. The server is
    Oh no it isn`t (9.40pm)

    I`d also be tempted to restrict the creation of directories and uploads
    to one specific path (unless this trial has people pointing to the
    uploads path)

    I use Bulletproof, thought it was quite good, but Gene6 was
    bought out by Bulletproof anyway, so I guess it don't matter
    much ;-)

    Yep, aside from 1 file and 1 folder, i was able to delete the entire
    contents of your FTP directories.

    Pay more attention to read/write access next time ...

    It's ok, what you managed to do was delete only the folders and files that
    were in the folder that was allocated to this test. Thanks for the prompt
    about permissions but I am on top of that already.

    without knowing (never heard of that one prior to this thread)
    I assumed it might have been to get user comment on additional
    features which might be disabled in a trial/free version, just
    as I've experimented with NewsMan Pro, which seems to do all I
    need without getting the full version... Peter M.
