Auto-start FTP server after windows reboot

Postby danesp » Sat Aug 07, 2010 4:31 pm

Hi,

Windows update has been setup on my server to automatically reboot the system after it updates. Sometimes, I'm not aware of the reboot. This results is the FTP server not running and clients unable to access the FTP site.

The wing FTP daemon is started and running after reboot (viewable in task window), but no server is started for hosting.
Is there a way to auto-start a specific FTP server on windows start up?


thanks
danesp

I don't know why you have this issue.

But I can tell you two ways to start Wing FTP Server service.

1. net start "Wing FTP Server"

2. C:\Program Files\Wing FTP Server\WFTPServer.exe
you may change "C:\Program Files\Wing FTP Server" into your installtion path.

The FTP server service does start after reboot, but I have to "right-click" the icon on the task window and select "Start server".
I'm wondering if the server can automatically "Start" after the "FTP server service" starts?

thanks

If you have checked "Start Tray Automatically" on the Tray Application, I think it will startup when you reboot Windows system. Because we just add a startup item under the regedit "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run".

Maybe your system has some security policy, can't launch Tray App after system updating. But it does not matter, it is a just Tray App, not main service.
