Multiple clients and PPK files

#1 Post by DavidPCS » 2021-02-22 10:07

Good Morning,
I'm trying to set up a FileZilla server that will allow multiple users from different companies to allow them to access their own folders. So far, I've been able to do this fairly easily (think you FileZilla).
However I need each user to have a unique key file that will allow them access only to their folder. Is this possible?

Thank you
David Kernaghan

Provide each user with a user account and individual password/key. Include their Home directory as Alias (appears as subdirectory) or set it as their Home (jails them into their directory). This can be automated by using groups and the :u token.

Otherwise, what do you mean by "key file"? FTP does only support protecting resources per-account, but not per-directory.
No support requests per PM! You will NOT get any reply!!!
FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.

PPK are Putty Private Key files. They are for SFTP. FileZilla Server only speaks FTPS.
