I'm of the opinion that this 'user' wants the implied security of Linux, or its 'freeness' rather than put out the money and time to set up Windows 2008 Server, which is required to get the full functionality of GlobalScape FTP.  Sorry, but Wine is NOT a replacement for this Operating System and probably never will be.  It is an implementation of the Windows32 API, functions depend on the version of Windows(TM) selected.  We will not and should not get into file permissions beyond that of what the base operating system provides.  This will limit what functionality is available for some programs.

I agree with your statements above.  If the OP took the time, there are solutions to what is needed.  And some of them are lengthy and complicated to implement.  And it involves more than just setting up IPTables and TC.
