Core FTP Server is software for Windows that allows you to exchange files with others via networks and the internet. The FTP protocol (File Transfer Protocol) allows files to be moved across the internet and networks with relative ease, regardless of computer platform (Windows, Unix, Mac, etc). The server program is setup on your computer and allows access by others to your files. You control who accesses what files by setting up user accounts on the FTP server.
Users access your FTP server via a FTP client. FTP clients allow users to access your server to exchange files (more commonly known as uploading and downloading).
Core FTP Server supports the following FTP protocols.
Standard FTP (no security)
Core FTP Server was designed to be easy to setup and use.. We hope that you find the software quick and easy to setup. You can also find Core FTP client on our website that will allow you to transfer files between computers at your server.
