WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

ALLO FTP command

Updated May 3, 2017


This article explains the use of the Allocate (ALLO) FTP command.


All Serv-U versions


The ALLO command may be sent to a server that requires the necessary space for an uploaded to be reserved before the transfer takes place. The argument shall be a decimal integer representing the number of bytes (using the logical byte size) of storage to be reserved for the file. A server that does not require space to be reserved in advance should treat the command as a NOOP operation.
