I'm a relative Linux newb, and I have a client who is looking for some advice, so here I am.
The client currently has a Windows network, and uses Fox Pro for all of their programming needs. They have an FTP server running Windows 2k3 with IPSwitch FTP program installed that customers log into to access their content of personal files created. He would like to move to the server to Linux.
I know enough to setup the server (using Fedora) and install a web server and FTP server, limit SSH access, etc.
My questions are:
- How difficult is it to set it up so the program copies the personal files to the correct folder with the correct perms?
- When adding the ftp users, can/should you assign them to an FTP group?
- Will there be issues copying from the Windows machine to the Linux server?
Each client has their own username and password, and only see their specific files. I'm assuming we could use Samba so Windows can access the folders.
Any feedback or direction would be GREATLY appreciated!
