SYNOPSIS

jftpgw [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents the program jftpgw which is an FTP proxy/gateway that uses the FTP protocol (unlike those FTP proxies that fetch via FTP but provide the file via HTTP). You can use it to make servers behind a firewall/NAT server (masquerading server) accessible or to allow users behind such solutions to transfer files to and from the outside of the LAN.

OPTIONS

-e, --encrypt
  Start the small, built-in password creation. jftpgw will read your input password, output a crypt()ed version of this password and exit.
-f, --configfile FILE
  Read FILE instead of the default configfile (instead of the built-in location)
-h, --help
  Display a short help text.
-i, --inetd
  Tell jftpgw that it is run from inetd. In this case it will not try to become a daemon.
-s, --single
  Run only a single thread of jftpgw (you won’t need this option in the normal use. It’s nice for debugging, to trace the program or execute it within a debugger).
-t, --tcpwrap
  Use libwrap for access control. This will disable the "normal" access control via the "access allow|deny" directives in the configuration file. Make sure you have libwrap support compiled in (check with --version)
-V, -v, --version
  Display the version number and exit.

NOTES

Please note that the 0.13.x version is the first one that has a different configuration than the versions released previously. The new configuration has a completely different (more flexible) configuration system and the internal structure changed a lot.

AVAILABILITY

The latest release is available on the jftpgw homepage.
