A secure and fast FTP server for Hassio.
The FTP protocol might become in handy sometimes. While old, it still has its use. For example, most IP Cameras still support the upload of images or videos via FTP.
This add-on provides an FTP Server for Hass.io in a reasonably secure manner. While FTP is not entirely secure by its (unencrypted) nature, this add-on supports FTP over SSL (FTPS) and jails (chroot) the virtual users in their home directories.
Of course, if you’d really want to, you could also use this add-on to gain access to your Home Assistant configuration via FTP(S).
The installation of this add-on is pretty straightforward and not different in comparison to installing any other add-on.
- Search for the “FTP” add-on in the add-on store and install it.
- Start the “FTP” add-on
- Check the logs of the “FTP” add-on to see if everything went well.
Please read the documentation for more information about the use and configuration of this add-on.
