freakazoid: is there an advantage to using the portable version? I couldn't find anything on the site explaining it and the default program is natively portable.

webfork: Because it's their preferred portable build. Not everyone will need the full package. The lite / portable build should be sufficient for people building a website for testing locally and on the go.

Just for clarification, is the full version portable? Because the only version labelled "portable" at the download link appears to be the lite version, without FTP or Mail.

I partially share your opinion, but we're in minority. Recently I changed my mind about nag screens. I don't hate them anymore, as long as I can use the app for free. :)

b1001 on 2013-07-09 14:19

of course !
I wish I could convince Adobe to offer a "nagware" version of (let say) "Photoshop"

What it's done here it's a bit childish; if the application is not good erase the thing, if it is good just accept it as it is, but do not distribute buggy ancient versions.

Baby FTP Server v1.24

webfork on 8 Feb 2017
  • 116KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 27 Aug 2012
  • Suggested by Barrette

Baby FTP Server is a basic FTP server that allows only anonymous access. It supports most RFC959 FTP commands, as well as PASV and non-PASV mode. You can configure the home directory and set permissions for download/upload/rename/delete/create directory.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Windows registry. But given the nature of the application and the small number of options that it exposes, I am accepting it as portable.
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch babyftp.exe.

Webfork, HFS does provide upload features...

LeanPocket on 2009-10-06 19:51

marcoc, not ftp, web based only.

Although a great program to transfer a few files over the network, this program failed when transferring very large (over a gig) files over a network. I recommend instead Filezilla Server included in XAMPP (

nice and easy ftp server with all the necessary features. +++

Working link:

This project has not been updated since late 2003. This *may* mean there are unpatched security vulnerabilities. Use at your own risk or for temporary transfers. Consider the super-simple Baby FTP Server or the non-portable Filezilla Server

Orme on 2010-12-04 07:59

In fact, as a long-time user of TypSoft FTP server for quick temporary transferts, I reverted to version 1.00 because 1.10 and the short lived 1.11 patch ( TypSoft site was hijacked shortly after its release ) had problems if you did not have a genuine FTP client for browsing, while 1.00 still allows explorers and firefoxes as clients.
