Operating time scheduling

#1 Post by emond42 » 2020-03-30 11:27

Hello, simple question:
I'd like to have Filezilla Server active only from 7AM till 12AM each day.
Is there a way to set this to "auto-mode" so that I don't have to launch it and close it manually everyday?

Thanks so much for you help!

Not built-in.

You could however use Windows' Task Scheduler to start/stop the service.

Alternative to stopping/starting the server directly using sc.exe or net.exe, use the following commands:

Code: Select all

"FileZilla Server.exe" /stop
"FileZilla Server.exe" /start

Only disadvantage of these methods is, that it forcefully dropkicks all users out upon stopping the service. Very rude.

Unfortunately, there isn't any equivalent command line for toggling the "Lock server" or "Server online/offline" buttons. Both will not allow new connections but can still allow the existing clients to finish.
