disable ftp port controller


Is there a way to disable ftp port of the controller?

At least on alcatel switches you can enable or disable this port whenever you want, which most of the time you enable it when you need to upgrade the switch.


And i got a clietn which is asking me to disable this on the controller

You would use a service ACL to do that:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-Based-WLANs/What-is-the-function-of-service-ACL-in-6-3-or-How-do-I-block/ta-p/176402


The FTP implementation on the controller only allows devices to download AP code.  It does not allow uploads.
