I want to set up a FTP server (which I can access outside of my home network) and I have the following criterias:
I want to set up access for a specific user and block access to everyone else - preferably if I can give access by entering the person's IP-address beforehand.
I want to do the setup preferably through a graphic user interface, and not editing a bunch of text files or the likes.
Is there an Ubuntu software with graphical interface where I can setup the server settings with the above criterias met? Like you can with a bunch of other programs nowadays in Ubuntu LTS (I have OS Ubuntu 16.04 LTS). Imagine Filzezilla server on Windows for example; that's what I want/prefer.
I also have 2 follow-up questions related to FTP server guides:
I've also tried following this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/servergu...-configuration Simple. I entered the command sudo apt install vsftpd so I guess that vsftpd is installed, but now what? Where and how do I access it so I can set up settings and password?
I have found this comperehensive guide but I want to make sure it is solid, and not deceiving me to do something I don't understand: https://www.wikihow.com/Set-up-an-FTP-Server-in-Ubuntu-Linux
Do I get the experts' approval to follow this guide?
