Virtualhost/multiple domain support

Post by Chromebuster » Thu Mar 31, 2011 2:34 pm

Hi again,
just another thing. I just realized that for what I'm trying to do, it might be easier for me to have two separate FTP roots, accessed by two separate domains. Is this possible with Cerberus? Thanks.

Hello,

Can you describe in more details exactly what you are trying to do?

Absolutely. What I mean, is to have two separate FTP roots configured. For instance, one located at C:\FTPRoot and the other for instance at C:\sub\FTPRoot. That's what I mean. That sub would point to a different domain.

Yes, you can have add multiple Active Directory domains and have separate settings and roots for each. You would simply add a second AD to the authentication list under the User Manager's Active Directory page.

Of course, I'm assuming you mean Active Directory domains.

LOL. I wish it were that. I'm more or less referring to different FTP:// domains. Like a subdomain more or less, such as FTP://sub.technology-networks.org.

Not really. The FTP spec doesn't support the concept of domains or hosts like the HTTP protocol. There are a few hacks like prefixing the username with a domain/host or using a custom HOST command but Cerberus does not currently support either of those two methods. You can implement multiple domains with separate FTP listeners on separate interfaces and the appropriate DNS mapping but the user database is shared between all interfaces.
