FTP within another FTP

Postby mellul » Wed Jun 02, 2010 10:12 am

Hi,

I have an FTP which has a maximum quota of 10GB and the client wanted that a specific folder within this FTP be accessed with a separate username and password and allow him only 5GB of the total 10GB.

What is the best way to do this? I do not really want a mix up with the quotas and would not like to have more space given to him. And I would not like that the main FTP deletes the contents of the other persons FTP and the quota does not decrease.

I believe that since the FTP does not actually see the folder sizes I believe this will be a problem.

I hope I was clear and if you need any further explanation please advise.

Thanks in advance.

I am not very clear about your meaning. Could you explain it more detailed?

But from your description, I think it is hard to handle, because you have 2 contradictory conditions:
1. Quota must be assigned by two different user accounts.
2. Quota size must be decreased for two users when one of them deleted files.

Lets say we have a folder A linked to FTP User A. This client has full access to this FTP folder. This FTP (A) has another user B. A does not want B to have access and see all that is within A's folder, so A creates a folder for user B and would like another account to point to B's folder so B can only see and access his folder.

In this case yes, each one of them has a quota limit. I believe this will give quota problems between them.

In this scenario I believe it would be best to calculate the current quota from the folder size and not from what the client has uploaded and deleted, unless there is another way around this that you could advise me on.

Thanks

Yes, I believe it too, real-time calculating is the best and most accurate.
But from the standpoint of technology, I think it is very inefficient and impossible for large folders.

Any way, we will discuss about your requirement, and consider how to solve some situations like yours.
