Description:

NOTE: This project is no longer maintained See http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/ftpmonitor-plasmoid?content=109110 for new version.

Its a simple panel applet for KDE3, which monitors incoming connections to ftpd(vsftpd/ncftpd/pure-ftpd/proftpd) and generates passive popups.

For pure-ftpd, ncftpd, proftpd it acts as a frontend to pure-ftpwho, ncftpd_spy and ftpwho respectively. For vsftpd, it looks in output of ps -fe.

For more details and help, please visit http://queens.db.toronto.edu/~nilesh/linux/ftpmonitor/ or see http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/ftpmonitor-plasmoid?content=109110 for KDE4 version from Michal.

404 Error
The URL (http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/%7Eswlab/alumni-error/linux/ftpmonitor/) that you entered was not found on the CSE, IIT-Bombay Web server. It is possible that the object has moved from its earlier location.

Should be changed because this is a nice app.
would it be possible in the future to get Infos from a ftp-srv in the intranet ?

A new release for FTP Monitor is ready. I have fixed the bug that FTP Monitor will not update if ftp daemon in use was something other than pure-ftpd. I am just making sure that there are no more bugs this time when 0.80 is released.

Check the new release at

the problem refered to earlier about ftp monitor not updating the status of the server seems to stem from the later versions only.0.59 and 0.60 work perfectly with kde>=3.3.4 but 0.70 simply shows only
the ftp status at the time it is loaded.
Please look into it.

I guess, for mdk you need to compile with prefix=/opt/kde3/

./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3/
make
make install

why /opt/kde3 ?????

In mdk 10.0 the default kde dir is /usr/local/kde

That seems to be the default in ur config script also as the applet was installed there....

I'm confused.

Oh. I dont know a lot about mdk (I use SuSE). Anyways, default prefix is /usr/local/ so I guess you will need to do
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/kde/

how about adding support for stfp-server? :]

Report

Adding support for sftp is not easy (or may be not possible). All ftp-servers have a 'who' command (like pure-ftpwho, ncftpd_spy, ftpwho etc..), which can be used to find out who all are connected to server and what are they doing. My applet, ftpmonitor is just a graphical frontend to these 'who' commands. But no such monitoring tool exists for sftp servers. And hence extending FTP monitor for sftp will not be possible.

Thanks,
Nilesh Bansal.

nice app but i have a small wish -with proftpd the messages about the states should be parsed to a clear format like "login" stor/get file"
now it's not even separated with spaces

Sorry to ask such question. I am new to linux. I try to install the FTP Monitor but I cannot do that. I wonder how you guys did it. I received the following error after running "configure", then "make":
...
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

Look like I do not have the Qt installed. Is this right? I am not really sure...

I check the end of config.log, I see:
...
define ksize_t socklen_t
#endif
#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" void std::exit (int) throw (); using std::exit;

configure: exit 1

Thanks for all your comments

Yes, you need to install Qt-devel packages. All distros supply them, just use package manager (yast for suse, drakconf for mandrake .. ) and install qt-devel ackages.

can u add the facility to see the speed of users who copy from ftp server ?

is there a tool for monitoring sshd connections ?

ssh functionality is not available. Only FTP.

As far as speed is concerned, it does show speed. Which ftp daemon are you using?

Make sure that you set proctitle enable to yes in vsftpd.conf
For more details, see help at ftpmonitor webpage.

it is set - i have read the doc before installing ftp monitor :)
the ftp monitor does not show the header of table (first row - pid, user,speed etc) - and the speed column.

Can you just do a ps -fe | grep ftp and check if that displays speed etc. If that does, then its a bug in ftpmonitor. If ps -fe also does not display it, then ftpmonitor also can not as it uses ps -fe for displaying.
may be you can post some screenshot.
