I am an Online Future Commodity Broker, where all of my clients trades with me and for there daily account information they simply log-in to my server. I have created User ID and Password for every client. OS is win XP SP2 and using zFTP server for connectivity to clients. Client either connectes via Local Network (Wi-Fi) in some limited zone or thorugh Internet. I am using DSL connection with Linksys Broadband Firewall Router for directing FTP request to the FTP server.
Now I am thinking to use a Network HDD for keeping clients files. Is it possible like - I assign an IP address to Network HDD and connects it to my Switch, which in turn linked to my entire network with Router and Wi-Fi. Is it possible to install the FTP server on this Network HDD ? If I Shutdown all the PC's / Server in my network but keeps wi-Fi and Router on then will it possible for clients to get connectivity to this Network HDD (having FTP server installed) and download there files ?
Is there any such type of solution available ? If yes can u help me in deciding which Network HDD I should buy for such purpose.
Thanks for helping.
