My two suggestions

Here are my suggestions/requests for Cerberus. They have already been requested before. In search for a free FTP server, I tried WarFTPD first, but found it to be painstakingly slow... Not good at LAN parties :)

Anyway, I miss two very basic features:

* 'LIST' permission. Every FTP server has this and is mainly used for upload directories. Now I can't have an upload directory without all uploaded files plainly visible to all.

* More flexible directory mounting. WarFTPD can mount any directory to any point in the FTP server space. Ie., I could mount D:\DATA\Music to /pub/music. It is now to resrtrictive (/music).

I hope these two features will see the light of day soon. Keep up the great work!


Two more...

Two other basic features sprung to mind after I posted:

* 'Allow passive connections' option (to disable it, since I'm behind a router and don't want to open up a galore of ports.)

* Start the console minimized (tray icon only) during startup.

Sorry to be a pain :)
