Not all demo projects will include this example. If this example is
included in a demo project then it may be necessary to set
mainCREATE_FTP_SERVER to 1 at the top of

FreeRTOS+TCP is still in the lab
FreeRTOS+TCP is already used in
commercial products and we encourage
you to try it yourself.
Be aware however that we are
still refining its design, and the
source code and documentation do not
yet meet Real Time Engineers Ltd's strict quality standards.
Please use the forum for support,
feedback and ideas,
or contact us directly if you have a specific business interest.
This example uses FreeRTOS+TCP to implement an FTP server that accesses
files from a file system implemented by FreeRTOS+FAT. Some demo projects
store files on a RAM disk, while others store files on non-volatile media
such as an SD card. Some projects even mount both a RAM disk and an
SD card within the same virtual file system.
If an example uses a RAM disk then a set of example files are created on
the RAM disk after it is mounted.
NOTE: Performance will be limited when using the FreeRTOS Windows port.
The FTP server can be accessed using a standard FTP client, such as
FileZilla. To connect:
Enter the IP address or hostname of the FTP server as the host
server is the target running FreeRTOS+TCP).
Enter "anonymous" as the username.
Leave the password blank.
