FTP Server Example
Note: This demo has a dependency on the FreeRTOS+FAT code base and is
therefore currently only available in the FreeRTOS Labs download.
FreeRTOS+TCP and FreeRTOS+FAT Examples
Not all demo projects will include this example. If this example is included in a demo project then it may be necessary to set mainCREATE_FTP_SERVER to 1 at the top of the project’s main.c source file to include the example in the build.
This example uses FreeRTOS+TCP to implement an FTP server that accesses files from a file system implemented by FreeRTOS+FAT. Some demo projects store files on a RAM disk, while others store files on non-volatile media such as an SD card. Some projects even mount both a RAM disk and an SD card within the same virtual file system.
If an example uses a RAM disk then a set of example files are created on the RAM disk after it is mounted.
NOTE: Performance will be limited when using the FreeRTOS Windows port.
The FTP server can be accessed using a standard FTP client, such as FileZilla. To connect:
- Enter the IP address or hostname of the FTP server as the host (the FTP server is the target running FreeRTOS+TCP).
- Enter “anonymous” as the username.
- Leave the password blank.
