FTP Fallback Browser and Client Behaviors

Monday, September 10th, 2007


The MassTransit FTP Fallback Feature provides an additional method of working with files remotely hosted on a MassTransit Server. This feature works to effectively improve the overall usability of the product in the event an end user cannot install or upgrade the MassTransit Web Client Plug-in, or, if using the web client is not possible or restricted due to environmental concerns, such as accessing behind a proxy or on a slower connection. Using industry-standard FTP (file transfer protocol) to facilitate communication, the FTP Fallback Feature allows users quick and easy access to files in a straightforward and easy-to-use way.


Please see the attached document for additional information regarding the MassTransit FTP Fallback Feature and the way in which it interacts with popular web browser and FTP client software. This document provides good insight into the end user experience when using this feature.

How can MassTransit be configured to support inbound FTP connections for file transfers?


MassTransit servers for Macintosh platforms support inbound connections via FTP. In order to support this, the following procedure is required:

1. Click the “Configuration” button from the MassTransit Navigation bar.

2. Click on the “Incoming Calls” tab, located in the upper-left hand corner of the Configuration window.

3. Click on the “Add” button to create an incoming call method.

4. From the pulldown menu, select “FTP Server” and click “OK”.

5. Make sure that the “Answer incoming calls” option is checked, and click “OK.”

6. Click on the “Save” button in the lower-left corner of the Configuration window in order to register the changes.

MassTransit can be configured to allow individual users to access their own unique, private mailboxes. MassTransit may also be configured to enable “generic” or anonymous logins. Such configurations are controlled via MassTransit’s address book. Presently, there is no FTP Server support for Windows-based platforms.

NOTE: If a firewall is employed within your organization, additional security rules may be required to support inbound FTP connections. Traditionally, the File Transfer protocol requires ports 20, 21 and ports greater than 1024.
