Configure 3C Daemon for FTP/TFTP access

Although creating a FTP/TFTP  server using 3C daemon is pretty easy task, but at the same time it is very confusing if you don't have hands on ! I hope procedure below helps you :)

What you need here?

1. Download 3C Daemon from here, if you don't already have it.

2. Connect Laptop in same LAN as the SAN Switch.

3. Make sure Firewall and AntiVirus is in disabled state.

Let's Get Started:

1. Download and install 3C Daemon. Once, installed, open it. Screen looks like below one:

2. On the Left pane, you can create either a TFTP server or a FTP server. I am going to create a TFTP server. However, the process is same for both.

3. Click on "Configure TFTP server" under TFTP server if you wan to configure TFTP server. If you want to configure FTP server, then click on  "Configure FTP server" under FTP server.

Upload/Download Directory: Browse for a location you want to act as home directory for FTP access.

4. Under the "General Configuration", create a user and assign password for authentication and also define the permissions.

5. Click "OK" to save the configured values. Your TFTP server is ready now.

On Left pane, you can see the status "TFTP server is started".

Let's Verify 

I have a CISCO SAN Switch. I will try to upload the configuration on my Laptop which is now a TFTP server.

#copy startup-config tftp://
Typing to connect to tftp server.....
Connection to server Established. Copying started......
TFTP put operation was successful
Copy complete, now saving to disk (please wait)...

I opened E: drive in my laptop, which was the default directly I configured for TFTP operations. The Config file from SAN Switch was present there:
