    Question Some questions regarding setting up a download server?

    Hey all, thank you so much for replying so many times in my last thread I made here. I have a new problem though that hopefully some of you may be able to assist me with a solution.

    I have just setup a box downtown to be primarily a download server on a cogent unmetered connection. It will be just for myself, and perhaps a few other clients as well since I probably won't use a lot of resources with just my game file stuff.

    What is the best program to use to setup the box so I can use a http:// address with my IP address? Do I need 2 IPs to accomplish this? I just want to setup something where the client and I can upload files and not have the other party see everything they uploaded when they login.

    For example:

    I upload to my folder, and then go to my site hosted elsewhere and link the file like "http://123.456.789.111/myfolder/"


    Client uploads to their folder, and then goes to link it on their site like "http://123.456.789.111/theirfolder/"


    When someone goes directly to http://123.456.789.111, they cannot see all the folders because I have a foreign client already that will want to do adult files which I do not want associated with my site mistakenly. You may ask then why would I want to host him, and I'll just leave it at he made me a nice little offer for the small amount of space.

    Thank you all so much again in advance,

    Also, I have VNC setup and BulletProof FTP setup temporarily to test it out. But, I notice that it seems to time out or perhaps just freezes up for no rhyme or reason. I was just in a VNC session while typing out this thread, then went to change something and noticed the box on my taskbar vanished for it, so I keep having to reboot the box via APC utility to get it working again. Also, I have the FTP server setup to lauch on startup, but it doesn't for some reason. The box is running simple Windows2000 Pro, nothing fancy like Redhat or Windows2000 Server.

    if you don't have anonymous ftp enabled, i don't believe you need to worry about anonymous login attempts. I am not, however, a security expert.
