Step 1: Create a Group to manage Users
Group will make it easier for us to manage many similar user accounts. The first thing to do here is to create a new Group, then assign each separate account to this group. You choose the menu Edit > Groups and Select Add as below:
In the Main Menu, select Edit -> Users -> Add a new user and in the following group section, select the group you want.
Next, we select Enable account and enter the Password for this user.
Step 2: Create folder share settings
When you’re done adding new Users, select Shared Folders on the left, click Add under the Shared folders dialog box to choose which folders on your computer will be shared via FTP.
After selecting the folder to share, we give this user permission to read, edit, or delete when performing FTP. If you want to be read only by the user and do not have permission to edit or delete, you can uncheck write, delete,…
3. Access filezilla from Clinet
We fill in the Host, IP and Password information to be able to connect to FTP.
Note: In some cases we will not be able to connect because the firewall port has not been opened. So if this is the case, we can open the firewall port by the following.
– Go to the Start Menu, enter Windows Firewall in the Search box and then click Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.
– On the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security interface, click Inbound Rules in the left column and then select New Rule… in the right column.
– You will be allowed 1 port through the Firewall. When asked “What type of rule would you like to create”, click on Port and then select Next.
– Enter the port you want to choose for the FTP Server to run on (port number 21 by default).
– And then click Next to finish.
We can then connect FTP to the filezilla client now.
