Azure Container Instance FTP example

I'm trying to create a FTP server as an Azure Container Instance for testing FTP scripts. I'm having issues connecting to the vsftpd ftp service running on the instance. I believe the issue is related to opening dynamic ports on the container.

Does anyone have a working ACI ftp image?

Thanks,
Mike

    Hello @Mike,

    I am not sure, if my blog post can hep you:

    http://cloudcompute.info/connect-azure-container-instance-through-ssh-client-and-filezilla-like-client-to-transfer-files-easily/

    This shows, you can successfully connect an ubuntu container instance via sftp

    There is an example of creating a container as a SFTP server. However the open ports for SFTP are different than FTP.
