Well, first off it's "Active_Services = FTP_Service HTTP_Service" since it's just a simple list.

Basically it just allows you to use http(s) to download files from the ftp server. You can specify user:password style login information in the http request so it does handle authentication against existing user accounts which is nice. Other than that it allows for some administration via the interface but nothing you can use without someone writing the front end to it... I wouldn't bother with it at all since it's an incomplete implementation hardly worth using.

There used to be a Telnet service and I yanked it because it was worthless and there is a decent shot at some point I'll do the same to the HTTP service because I could then eliminate all the crappy C pointer tricks that attempt to make the services look the same which is fragile and annoying to debug...
