mTCP FTPSrv is an FTP server for DOS that is designed to
run well on just about any machine that runs DOS. That includes
everything from a PCjr running DOS 3.3 to the latest virtual machines
running whatever version of DOS you have installed. Features include:
- Support for up to 10 concurrent clients
- PORT and PASSIVE modes
- Support for working with home firewalls to enable external
clients to get through the firewall
- Support for all of the standard raw FTP commands
- Anonymous FTP support
- "Sandboxes" for restricting users to parts of the directory
- A permission scheme for managing access to commands that can
change the filesystem
- Compatibility with a wide range of FTP clients
Here is a screen shot of the FTP server running under DOSBox:

Why would anybody want to use an FTP server?
- Moving files back and forth to an old PC is faster easier over
the network than it is using floppy disks.
- You can use a modern FTP client with a GUI on your newer machines
to talk to the DOS machine.
- The FTP server provides logging and access control to your files.
- Run an "old school" shareware site right from your "old school"
FTPSrv is included with the other mTCP applications. They can be
downloaded from the main mTCP page
