Setting up Guest FTP access

We have build together a script that will allow you to easily setup FTP Access for your guest users.

The script has to be executed as root to allow it to seamlessly install the systemd files and start them up, so elevate from your user to root:

sudo su -

Grab the script from here:


Save the script, and then you run it like this:

bash username password pathtofiles

It is important that you insert the full path in the path and that you make sure to not include special characters in the password.

Once the script has run the guest ftp will be live on port 2121 - You can see the status of it by using:

systemctl status guest-ftp.service

As always, if you have any questions then please feel free to reach out.
