What is the difference between an ftp server and I(2) Drive Inbound Server? Setting up an ftp server can be difficult for your clients to use. It requires them to download an ftp client. You have to provide them with access information and instructions such as username, password, what port number to use and what software to use etc. In many cases where the client is behind firewall they simply can not connect to your server. Also you have to setup permission on the server in such a way that would allow them to upload their files without allowing them to view or download other files that have been uploaded. Anther problem is that after the files have been received you need to sort out what file belongs to which client. Unless you create a different username for each client you wont know who has send you files.

Also the user can enter his/her information, message and description about the files. You client will not see other files that have been send you. On the management side files are grouped by the sender along with their information.
