Use network share in TurboFTP Secure File Transfer Server


TurboFTP Server allows you to quickly set up a file server to securely serve files through different protocols like HTTPS, FTPS or SFTP/SCP. This guide will show how to configure TurboFTP Server to use network share.

Impersonation configuration

TurboFTP Server needs to impersonate a logged on user to access network share in a Windows domain environment. To do so, click on the domain in the the left pane (FTP in this example), tick on Enable impersonation checkbox and provide User, Password and Domain.

Configuring VFolder

  1. To configure VFolder to use network share click on DirAccess in the left pane and then New VFolder button.

  2. Provide Virtual Folder Name and Associated physical folder path.

  3. As we have permissions inheritance disabled at the root level we need to add someone to the list of VFolder permissions.
    To do so, click on the newly created VFolder and then Add Rule button.

  4. Select a user and click OK.

  5. Click on the user again and press Select All button to give him all permissions to the VFolder.

  6. Save changes by pressing Apply button.

Configuring TurboFTP Client

  1. Open TurboFTP Client Address Book, select New Site -> Standard FTP, provide Site Name, Address, User ID, Password and Initial Remote Folder and click Connect.

  2. You will be connected to the FTP server and Initial directory is set to Files, which is a network share on the file server.
