Description

The AllowStoreRestart directive permits or denies clients from "restarting" interrupted store file transfers (those sent from client to server). By default restarting (via the REST command) is not permitted when sending files to the server. Care should be taken to disallow anonymous ftp "incoming" transfers to be restarted, as this will allow clients to corrupt or increase the size of previously stored files (even if not their own).

The REST (Restart STOR) command is automatically blocked when HiddenStores is enabled, with the server returning a 501 error code to the client.
