I like to use raspberry as a fileserver to drop and pick files easily from anywhere. I don't care about safety of those files or that folder...
In past I've used FTP (with Pure-FTPd) and it was great:
- i can access directly from everywhere with "ftp://mydomain_OR_ip" , from a web browsers er even Window explorer!
- I had to set up a new specific user for ftp with access only to its own folders
Now, I've read up almost anywhere that FTP or FTPS is unsafe.... but it was simple and easy!
So I've turn on SFTP (the ssh one) on on my raspberry (after full OS reset), but there are some things I don't like:
- to access to it I have to install additional software like filezilla, which is unpratical;
- actually I log in with main user/password, and the folder I see is the main user one (home?) ... but I can even access to ALL the other folders of the storage drive....I don't like this.
(this last can be probably changed...)
My question(s) is:
Does safety matters about FTP/FTPS regards the whole systems?
Or just about read/write/spying data in/to ftpuser folders?
If the first (ftp/ftps expose the whole system), then, how can I access more rapidly/directly?
(it's a bother to install filezilla in every pc you go to)
Thank you everyone in advance!
