    This is a key feature we need for getting client projects up and running with legacy systems. The ftp2azure project is great, but it's limited in that it must use "active" mode ftp ( => Things to Note: #2), which is a problem for some NATs and firewalls we run into (

    Furthermore, I do not have a great sense of how many connections ftp2azure can handle, and what kinds of problems I might run into just because I'm running into it on the cloud (admittedly, I am just getting into going through the code)... it would be great if there was an Azure-based solution for this fundamental kind of connectivity.

    The permissions model system in ftp2azure ( gets it right => the client can provide only a username and a password, and we are responsible for tying that to a private blob container within our storage account. We can get as fancy as we want with this, for example, I can imagine supporting a file tree-like structure by letting the "username" property be a "/" delimited path, and linking that to a hierarchy within my permissions-management tables in my database.
