Allow FTP clients to run external programs on the server

There would extremely nice if the server would
implement support for extending functionality via FTP
"site" commands, for example by configuring an external
program to be ran, passing the "site" partameters as
arguments to that program. Furthermore, even better
would be that the server is able to load some plugin
dll's and call a standard function in it, passing the
"site" arguments. This in ideea that the function
returns a string which is returned to the client as
response to the "site" command. I would like to write
such a dll for doing some custom adminstration on my
home server remotely.

Triage suggestion

This appears to be a request to implement an insecure and dangerous way to run arbitrary commands on the FTP server.

I suggest closing this ticket as rejected".

@bytencoder, please install and use an SSH server. Microsoft has released a beta of OpenSSH for Windows and this will be a far better solution.
