Over the past month or so, I have been setting up my NAS, rebuilding my ROM sets onto it, and trying to set it up for FTP access for people to grab what they need from my sets.
Most of my sets are rebuilt. I need to do a bit of housekeeping, but I think that I am mostly ready to start giving people access.
What I need is some advice.
I have vsftp installed on my server, and I think I have it set up to jail people to specific directories (I have personal stuff on here that isn't for everyone
). Any tips on making sure it works well would be great. Second, I have set FTP users to read only. I want to create a directory to allow people to upload, should they wish. I would like to set this up within FTP, rather than adjusting file permissions.
The current config should jail you to the roms directory. I have a 18mbps upload speed. Think about this when you're downloading many isos, for example. This is my own server. I reserve the right to reboot it, turn it off, or anything like that without notice. I don't care if you want to download all my gamecube ISOs, for example, but keep in mind that if 18 people are doing this, you will get an average 1mbps speed, and it will take a long time. If I reboot in that time, it will make your life more difficult. You might want to consider finding a torrent instead.
As I say I don't care how much you want to download, but if I suspect that anyone is trying to poke around where they shouldn't, I also reserve the right to revoke access.
Anyway, for now, if you want access, PM me for details.
I have probably made a mess of the above post, but never mind.
I currently have the following sets hosted:
TOSEC - All - Complete as of 2016-11-11
Custom - a bit scattered. I have some sets. Not other. Working on them soon.
Discontinued - Complete
Main - I believe I have the current best miss with sets from 2016-09-01.
Amiga - 527
GBA Ecards - 3
New 3ds - 1
Spectrum - 3
Bios - complete
Main - Again, dats from 2016-09-01. Things are a bit scattered. Small sets are at best fix, I think. Big sets are in much TLC. PSX is complete, or at least, best miss. Gamecube is likely not too far off
