Community - 6.1.2 (r589dc49b-b205) how to Enable FTP service

Good day

I would like to ask for your help, to know how I can enable the FTP service in alfresco, it is implemented in Docker and the version is the one discussed in the subject.

Thank you so much

Re: Community - 6.1.2 (r589dc49b-b205) how to Enable FTP service

Typically, adding these properties in alfresco-global.properties should allow you to use ftp.

ftp.enabled=true
ftp.port=21

You need to make sure the configured port is open for access. Configure docker-compose file to allow port access 

ports:
- "21:21"

Apart from the above properties there are few more settings if you have advance requirements. You can refer this documentation for details: https://docs.alfresco.com/6.1/concepts/fileserv-ftp-intro.html

Hi abhinavmishra14

Thanks for answering.

I am reviewing the documentation, but they talk about the admin console, but is this only for the enterprise version?

additionally I see a configuration for the docker-compose.yml file but I have not been able to make it work.

I attach my file to see if I am doing it wrong

Thank you so much

Re: Community - 6.1.2 (r589dc49b-b205) how to Enable FTP service

In JAVA_OPTS add the properties i mentioned earlier and see if that works. See highlighted. I don't see anything related to admin console here: https://docs.alfresco.com/6.1/concepts/fileserv-ftp-props.html

However, when you go to admin console, it will just show whether ftp is enabled or disabled.

Re: Community - 6.1.2 (r589dc49b-b205) how to Enable FTP service

yes, and give it a try:


FTP just works like a charm, I just added this in JAVA_OPTS of docker-compose.yml:
-Dftp.enabled=true
-Dftp.port=2121

added port to alfresco service:

  • 21:2121 #ftp

edited alfresco/Dockerfile and added this line at the bottom:
EXPOSE 2121

Use ACTIVE communication mode in the client in order to connect to Alfresco (port 21)

Re: Community - 6.1.2 (r589dc49b-b205) how to Enable FTP service

Thanks a14 and jpbuttet,

do the configuration in the docker-compose.yml file, but it still doesn't work for me to access by ftp, I even do a port scan and it doesn't show me the available ftp ports.

I have doubts with the last 2 notes

edited alfresco / Dockerfile and added this line at the bottom:
EXPOSE 2121

Use ACTIVE communication mode in the client in order to connect to Alfresco (port 21)

Could you explain to me where I find the Alfresco/Dockerfile route, since it creates me too many.

*****attached image of my installation, which is in /var/ lib/docker

Print my config install

What's the OS of your host (the macine that runs docker) ?

Linux, Windows or other ?

Thanks Jpbuttet

It's a Linux Centos 7, but I just reboot the machine, and all the information was deleted, is it a docker problem?

I followed this how to How To

Re: Community - 6.1.2 (r589dc49b-b205) how to Enable FTP service

hello,

since you run linux, the ftp server within your container can not use port 21 unless you run the container under a privileged account and this is something you should no do.

Docker can do the mapping for you, Map port 21 of your host with port 2121 inside your container. Just read my previous message.

You just lost your data stored in your container, Docker has two options for containers to store files in the host machine, so that the files are persisted even after the container stops: volumes, and bind mounts: 

https://docs.docker.com/storage/

hope it helps

best regards

Re: Community - 6.1.2 (r589dc49b-b205) how to Enable FTP service

I recently started with docker and alfresco 6.x community. So far i was using 5.x community version. 

I was also wondering about setup and all and i came across this tool on Alfresco github repository.

https://github.com/Alfresco/alfresco-docker-installer

I followed the instructions and i was able to setup the alfresco successfully. I haven't go to advance like enabling ftp etc. but i think this tool provides a lot of flexibility in configuration.

You may give it a try.
