recently I create a internet ftp server with the filezilla server in the xampp 1.7.7 for windows.
the service structure like below:
windows xp ( xampp 1.7.7) start ftp server in port (9002) ----ADSL router(port forwarding for 9002)---ddns-- internet ----user
Setting in filezilla server.
I change the FTP service port from 21 to 9002. use passive mode.
open 9110-9130 as the data connection port.
change admin port for filezilla server to 9900. and add a long enough admin password.
allow any one from any ip address to visit this FTP service.
I heard lots of people said that use xampp to set up a productive environment is not safe enough.
I want to know what kind of security challenge I'll face in the future for this FTP service ? Do I need to do anything else to secure this service?
