Since i’m not using a windows file sharing ( yes, it’s a idiot friendly ) i realu need something, what
can suit me. so here is my simple how to … a ftp server and connection to it.
what we need ?
cerberus ftp server
file zilla fpt client
u can use ofc. other ftp server/client software. but i’m not sure hot to use it, so u need to find it out by u self ;]
step 1 - lets rock
if u have all stuff i give it here, install it & run. make sure u dont have any firewall protection, or configure it so the comodo and ftp server/client can get connetc with internet without nothing.
next step it’s a creating a network over comodo. after u made it, u can start invite friends or u pet. what u like, do it. now lets configure comodo. run it and log into. now let’s make sure, nothing is betwen the comodo<->internet connection.
for do that, go to start → run
‘ping 5.x.x.x’ and press enter (without the ’ & where the 5.x.x.x it’s you’s own ip adress from comodo evpn)
what u see now, it’s reguest from ping command. as long u see ttl=something it’s ok. but if u see
‘request time out’ what u need to do it’s make sure, firewall is uninstaled (if u turn it off, it will still works as system bacground process) and there is nothing more, what can block way for comodo to internet.
configuration of cerberus
now ( comodo IS ON ALL THE TIME) run cerberus. as soon it’s start’s make sure u have check this box on the right side of window
what it is ? it’s a (mine) comodo adress. it’s on this adress only cerberus will run his ftp server. only on this, so no1 from lan network/any other place will not connect.next thing is configuration for connection. simply go to
Configuration => Server Manager
and in tab ‘general’ and make sure, u have configure as on image
now press ok button and go to
Configuration => User Manager
here what we need to do, it’s add new user/users with permision for download/upload/other. simply, in tab ‘users’ press the ‘new’ button. after this, u can change user name/password/change other user login behavior.
what i do, it’s a create user with:
name - test
password - test
simultaneous logins - 1
now uder this, just like on screen, u can change place for his space on your’s ftp server. just press the ‘…’ button and browse for folder, where u want to store files for friend. in my test server, it will be on c:/test ftp … u can try other location, like usb drive/other
after u choose place, now press the ‘add to root’ so u can configure it. just mark it and on right side u have options to change. like download/upload/change/rename/other. simply just tick the box and u can see it’s change from ‘deny’ to ‘allow’ … and this is permision for acctions over file’s in our server. any1 who can connect to server, can change ( if u give permision for it) upload or download ( and mutch more, all u need it’s a allow/deny)
add user with ip range. or block user. now, when u configure root for each user, now let’s add some users. so they can or can’t connect to our server. to do it, go to
Configuration => IP Manager
as u can see on picture, u can add range of ip adress. or simply add 1 adress only. and u can simply allow or deny to connect to ftp server.
to do it, simple tick the ‘assign a range of adress’ and put ip adress. IT’S NEED TO BE A COMODO EASY VPN ADRESS. why ? we are creating our ftp server over the comodo. now, after u have add some ip adress, u can change to connect or not to connect for this ip adress. as u can see it on picture
now, when u have all stuff configure, lets make sure, u can connect to server. close all runing prgrams. run comodo … run cerberus (go to file → start server) … now it’s time of the truth … file zilla.run file zilla and on the window, type in box’s as it’s on picture
host - your’s ip adress from comodo ( for me it’s 220.127.116.11 )
username - username we have create ( for me it’s a new )
password - password we have choose ( again it’s a new )
and press ‘quickconnect’ … if rverything is configure ok, u should see on right side of filezilla screen our root folder for ftp server.
now simply give for u friend network name and password on comodo evpn. after hi connect, make sure connection is ok ( on hamachi work’s as well with slow connection) create new user in cerberus/pud you’s friend ip adress/make permision’s for download-upload and have fun
ps. i’m using a xp prof. with sp.2 … over vista/7 what u need to do, it’s in control pannel → Network and Sharing Center
for vista - Now press Alt, click on Advanced > Advanced Settings and put Hamachi at the top of the list.
for 7 - then, on the left side panel, click on ‘Change adapter settings’. Now press Alt, click on Advanced > Advanced Settings and put Hamachi at the top of the list.
If you’re running Vista ensure that Hamachi appears in the ‘Network and Sharing Center’ as a ‘Private Network’ .
If it doesn’t, then press customize (at Hamachi, of course) and set it to ‘Private Network’. … not sure how to configure it on 7 ;/
