 +## Enabling the Service
 +
 +The File Fabric'​s FTP/​FTPS/​SFTP service may not be enabled on installation. ​ To ensure that it is turned on and enabled, log in as smeconfiguser then become root and start and enable and start the service:
 +
 +```
 +su -
 +systemctl enable cloudftp
 +systemctl start cloudftp ​
 +```
 +## Using an Additional Subdomain
 +
 +CloudFTP can be accessed using the File Fabric'​s FQDN.  Some customers may choose to create an additional FQDN for use by FTP clients, for example //​ftp.myfilefabric.com//​. ​
 +
 +Since version 1901, File Fabric license keys have been bound to the FQDNs by which the File Fabric is accessed. ​ Before client programs can use the additional FQDN, you must obtain from SME Support a license key in which the FQDN has been encoded, and install that key on your File Fabric. ​
