FTP Server using Apache FTPServer Library

Was working on getting a FTP Server.

Creating a FTP server using Apache Library is very simple.

FTPServerCode

As you can see in the image you will need some libs, and all the libraries can be found here : http://mina.apache.org/ftpserver/apache-ftpserver-106-release.html

Below is the code to get started. You will also get all the properties file from the above link.

Content for log4j.properties.

log4j.rootLogger=DEBUG, C
log4j.appender.C=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.C.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.C.layout.ConversionPattern=[%5p] %d [%X{userName}] [%X{remoteIp}] %m%n

Content for users.properties.

# Password is "admin"
ftpserver.user.admin.userpassword=21232F297A57A5A743894A0E4A801FC3
ftpserver.user.admin.homedirectory=f\:/
ftpserver.user.admin.enableflag=true
ftpserver.user.admin.writepermission=true
ftpserver.user.admin.maxloginnumber=0
ftpserver.user.admin.maxloginperip=0
ftpserver.user.admin.idletime=0
ftpserver.user.admin.uploadrate=0
ftpserver.user.admin.downloadrate=0


ftpserver.user.anonymous.userpassword=
ftpserver.user.anonymous.homedirectory=f\:/
ftpserver.user.anonymous.enableflag=true
ftpserver.user.anonymous.writepermission=false
ftpserver.user.anonymous.maxloginnumber=20
ftpserver.user.anonymous.maxloginperip=2
ftpserver.user.anonymous.idletime=300
ftpserver.user.anonymous.uploadrate=4800
ftpserver.user.anonymous.downloadrate=4800

Code below – can be found in the FTPServer Source Examples – Modified a little for my need.

package com.ftp.server;
import java.io.File;
import org.apache.ftpserver.FtpServer;
import org.apache.ftpserver.FtpServerFactory;
import org.apache.ftpserver.ftplet.User;
import org.apache.ftpserver.ftplet.UserManager;
import org.apache.ftpserver.listener.ListenerFactory;
import org.apache.ftpserver.main.AddUser;
import org.apache.ftpserver.ssl.SslConfigurationFactory;
import org.apache.ftpserver.usermanager.ClearTextPasswordEncryptor;
import org.apache.ftpserver.usermanager.PropertiesUserManagerFactory;
import org.apache.ftpserver.usermanager.SaltedPasswordEncryptor;
import org.apache.ftpserver.usermanager.UserFactory;
import org.apache.ftpserver.usermanager.impl.BaseUser;
import org.apache.log4j.PropertyConfigurator;
import org.slf4j.impl.Log4jLoggerFactory;

public class EmbeddingFtpServer {

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

PropertyConfigurator.configure("log4j.properties");
FtpServerFactory serverFactory = new FtpServerFactory();
ListenerFactory factory = new ListenerFactory();

// set the port of the listener
factory.setPort(8080);

// replace the default listener
serverFactory.addListener("default", factory.createListener());

System.out.println("Adding Users Now");
PropertiesUserManagerFactory userManagerFactory = new PropertiesUserManagerFactory();
userManagerFactory.setFile(new File("users.properties"));

userManagerFactory.setPasswordEncryptor(new SaltedPasswordEncryptor());
UserManager userManagement = userManagerFactory.createUserManager();
UserFactory userFact = new UserFactory();
userFact.setName("ahmed");
userFact.setPassword("ahmed");
userFact.setHomeDirectory("F:/");
User user = userFact.createUser();
userManagement.save(user);

serverFactory.setUserManager(userManagement);
serverFactory.setUserManager(userManagerFactory.createUserManager());

// start the server
FtpServer server = serverFactory.createServer();

System.out.println("Server Starting" + factory.getPort());
server.start();
}
}

Once done ,server will be running on port 8080 (factory.setPort(8080); ) and “F:/” (userFact.setHomeDirectory("F:/"); ) directory will be the root Directory. Connect to server using any FTPClient like Filezilla.

NOTE: SSL part is not working, will updated once done.

    I tried to test your code, i can’t login using the created username and password, but if i login anonymously it connects, and the problem is that filezilla doesn’t show the directory specified, it’s like an empty directory the client is showng

    I have updated the code in GIT hub here is the link .. https://github.com/zubayr/big_data_learning/tree/master/ftpServices/ftpServerCode

    Try executing this code, I have used ant build.

    As I understand your issue, its not working may be a firewall issue.
    But try the code in the Repos above, it should work. If not let me know.

    Regards,
    Ahmed.

    Also make sure you using the Port as 8080 not 21(default), just a though. :)
