FTP File Transfer Protocol Support
Software release 2.1.7 feature.
You can transfer a file from the camera to your host computer using the FTP protocol.

You can replace the files /etc/inetd.conf (to enable write to camera file system) and/or /etc/password (to set a FTP login password) as described in Configuration Files.
There are several ftpd options. If you want to be able to delete files, you need to add -w to the ftpd line in the /etc/inetd.conf file.
ftp stream tcp nowait root ftpd ftpd -w /
You can fetch the current inetd.conf via http://10.11.12.13/static/etc/inetd.conf
Modify the file, save it to the SD card root directory, and power on the camera to install the inetd.conf from the SD card to /etc/inetd.conf
