FTP Server

Studio’s FTP server can be used to upload lists of subscribers which can then be imported into either Mailing Lists or Suppression Lists.

FTP Client Configuration

Please use the following settings when configuring an FTP client to connect to GreenArrow’s FTP server:

Server Name

The domain name portion of the URL that you visit when logging in to GreenArrow’s web interfaces. For example, if you login to GreenArrow Studio at https://example.drhinternet.net/ga, then the server name to use is example.drhinternet.net.

Username and Password

The same as what you use for GreenArrow Studio’s web interface.

TLS

If your FTP client has a STARTTLS option, then we recommend enabling it, but this is not required.

FTP Server Configuration

The following FTP server configuration files are in the /var/hvmail/control directory:

  • pure-ftpd.pem - the PEM-encoded certificate chain bundle to use for TLS.
  • pure-ftpd.args - A list of arguments to pass to the FTP server. Here are the default arguments:

    --tls=1 --chrooteveryone -lextauth:/var/run/hvmail-pure-authd-studio.sock -O clf:/var/hvmail/log/pure-ftpd/xfer.log
    

    See Pure-FTPd’s README file for a list of available arguments.

Changes to either of the above files can be applied by restarting the FTP server:

svc -t /service/hvmail-pure-ftpd
