Messages

These settings control the welcome messages and other server responses given by the FTP server to clients. There are three main areas of messages that can be controlled. The first section is for Welcome messages (pre and post login). The second set of messages are used for responses to various commands used by the FTP Server. The third and final section is to define messages for a large variety of failure scenarios within the system.
