FTP Retrieval System
This page documents the configuration and process for allowing warehouse data requesters to retrieve their data over ftp.
The goals of this system are as follows:
Allow users to retrieve their requested data over the internet.
Limit users to retrieving only the data they have requested
Disallow shell access for users - File retrieval only
Require that users provide a username and password when retrieving their data.
Require users to retrieve their data within a specified time frame.
Avoid duplicating data on the server.
Prevent users from changing data housed on the server.
Maintain the directory structure of requested data.
Automate the system configuration as much as possible.
