[En-Nut-Discussion] FTP server on Ethernut V 1.3H

I don't have a enut 1.3 board, but in general, if you want to use FTP 
you need something to fetch files from or to store them in. These boards 
do not have any storage device of an interesting size for an FTP, so the 
filesystem is not activated by default.

So you have two options. Either you attach an external storage device, 
like an SD-Card or you build a virtual filesystem inside the small RAM.

You didn't tell about your intention, why you need a FTP for your 
system. But if it is for fetching logfiles or measurement data, then you 
should think about faking a filesystem and put your mesaurement results 
into there. The FTP then can fetch and delete the file but not read.

Best regards,
