Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/scanner/ftp/easy_file_sharing_ftp
msf auxiliary(easy_file_sharing_ftp) > show actions
    ...actions...
msf auxiliary(easy_file_sharing_ftp) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(easy_file_sharing_ftp) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(easy_file_sharing_ftp) > run
