NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade ftpdmin -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade ftpdmin -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Ftpdmin is a minimal Windows FTP server. FTP does not require an "install". It is intended to be run temporarily, on an as-needed basis basis to do file transfers between Windows computers without going thru the trouble of trying to configure windows file sharing or an FTP server. Also useful for Windows to Linux if the Linux computer doesn't happen to have an FTP server already set up and configured.

Ftpdmin is not intended as an internet FTP server, or even intended to be left running. Rather, Ftpdmin is started from the command line so that another computer can connect to it via FTP, typically over a LAN. When the file transfers are done, stop Ftpdmin. No 'installation' is necessary to use it.

Ftpdmin has no notion of security or even passwords. Rather, once it is running, everyone can connect to it. The only resemblance of security is the -g option (get only, disallows put), and the ability to specify a directory that ftpdmin shall consider the root directory.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

  • Source code: zip (build with Microsoft Visual C++)
  • Known issues: Ftpdmin will mess up directory handling if you connect with more than one client at a time. Fixing this would require a fair bit of work, as ftpdmin relies on the OS's current directory as its own directory, but the current directory is not thread local. However, the way ftpdmin is meant to be used, this isn't really a problem.
