Distributed FTP Daemon 1.0 - The little node that could
The little node that could sustain 10mbit throughput along with other
<your_amount_of_nodes> other similair nodes.
A lot has changed since 1.0, i'm afraid we haven't made much effort to
keep track of all the changes, since it was pretty much a one man
project until shortly after 0.9.0.
Anyway here is a small selection of the new features:
*AUTH TLS support.
*Modularized command handlers.
*Ability to change text output without editing .java source files.
And many many many more small features that we just forgot about when
doing all the coding, next release will contain a more complete
changelog. We'll also do our best to release more often in the future.
All documentation and installation notes is available from
File format for saving filelist to disk has changed, from XML using JDOM
to using a custom MLST format. The reason for this was that XML was
inefficient, both writing using DOM and taking many times more disk
To convert your old files.xml to files.mlst, issue the following
command, in the main DrFTPD 1.0 directory, containing the old
<pre>java -classpath classes:lib/jdom.jar:lib/log4j-1.2.8.jar
Or on win32:
java -classpath classes;lib/jdom.jar;lib/log4j-1.2.8.jar
drftpd.conf has been split up into drftpd.conf and slave.conf to avoid
Almost all configuration files have been moved to conf/.
ftp-data/ has been removed, it didn't makes sense when running as a
standalone application. The subfolders text, users, logs have been moved
into the DrFTPD main directory.
DrFTPD 1.0 also uses wrapper instead of the old bash scripts. It
provides full service managment. It also allows running as a Win32
service on Windows NT based platforms.
