File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a TCP protocol for downloading files between computers. This article tutorial will show you how to install and setup an FTP server on Ubuntu 14.04.
Access to an FTP server can be managed in two ways:
- Anonymous – remote clients can access the FTP server by using the default user account called “anonymous” or “ftp” and sending an email address as the password.
- Authenticated – a user must have an account and a password.
