    FTP Implementation Question: Should FTP usernames be considered case sensitive?

    Do you know what's the right solution of {subject} ? I'm not sure how to implement it to FTP server, whether should I refuse username which won't case just because case of letters, or whether shouldn't I care about that.

    Im sure the UNIX guys would say yes. Windows guys might say no. Why not make it a configurable option for your customer to decide.

    Or check the appropriate RFC (959) and see what it says.

    you should consider where your FTP Server will be running.
    If you are writting it for windows environment then you must not check for username case senstive but if for unix flavours then you must check case senstive on username
