FTP Server

Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET 4.2 includes a sample File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server. This sample application is intended for use by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Windows CE provides the FTP server source code as is, so that you can customize the feature for your specific requirements. FTP is used for copying files to and from remote computer systems over a network using TCP/IP.

The FTP server supports IPv6. For more information about IPv6, see Core Protocols of IPv6 and Internet Protocol version 6 Addressing.

The Windows CE .NET 4.2 implementation of FTP server enables you to perform the following tasks:

  • Transfer files from a Windows CE–based device to a desktop computer using a TCP/IP connection.
  • Create virtual directories under the FTP root directory.
  • Use the Web-based network configuration utility to perform various configuration tasks.

The FTP server is installed and loaded as a service using Services.exe. For more information about Services.exe, see Services.exe.

Note   The FTP server implementation in Windows CE .NET is a sample provided for educational purposes. As a result, a number of features are implemented only to show how the feature should operate. While the key functionality of these features is implemented, a production FTP server should address these features appropriately.
