Help setting up FTP and SAMBA server
« on: March 11, 2017, 11:58:04 PM »
Hello,
I am new to Tiny Core and I have been advised to use it to set up a RPi FTP and SAMBA server. The purpose of this server is to act as backup storage of the snapshots of my network video recorder.

I do not need any secure connection and everything remains in the Intranet and there no connection to the Internet.

The network video recorder has been already configured to upload to an FTP server and everything works. I have just tested with another Linux based system as server and it works perfectly.

I just would like to set up now Tiny Core to have a lighter and stable server.

Are FTP and SAMBA packages already included in the SD image or what shall I do to install them?

Thanks a lot,
daniele

There are gftp, lftp and samba4 in the piCore repo - none of these are in the sd card image.

Thanks for advising.
My network video recorder support standard FTP, what one between gftp and lftp would you advise me to install?

Thanks

I'm guessing (I haven't used either) that lftp is the command line ftp and gftp is a gui version, so up to you  :)

These are ftp clients, question was an ftp server if I'm right.

Exactly I need an ftp server. Where can I find it? Thanks
