ISPConfig is a multi-server control panel that is accessed from one server.. How would something like this affect that functionality?

Doesn't affect it at all. It run independent of other things on the server and doesn't even require a database. Pretty sweet too.

If ajaxexplorer is a FTP client, it should be able to authenticate itself by FTP login like any other client?
This sounds like an interesting implementation actually.. Most panels out there have a file explorer built into it. I actually administer some cpanel servers, and I think many novices really like that feature that are hosted. I believe yes it should stay a separate package, but perhaps a configuration option in the System module for if its installed or not. If its installed & configured in the System module, then in the sites section, provide an icon link to automatically autoauth into for the account.

There is already a icon link available that can be configured under System > Interface config to point the users to the webftp application that the administrator wants to provide for its customers.

That would require to store the passwords in cleartext and I doubt that that will be a good idea.

Perhaps there's a way to create a special auth module to work with this task?
Similar to how cpanel autoauths into phpmyadmin.. Which I believe we could easily create one for phpmyadmin looking at its auth documentation:

http://wiki.phpmyadmin.net/pma/Auth

You would have to extend pure-ftpd for this, not sure if its c or c++ code.

Thats very different from ftp, as phpmyadmin supports it to use a global mysql user for logging in and applying restrictions in a different way. So thats not comparable with FTP.

I understand that.. Though from what I'm reading here, you can make authentication modules for this as well. Basically what I'm thinking, is that the actual ajaxexplorer could be on the remote server in a multi-server setup. And then do API call back to remote authenticate the connection with ISPConfig.... Haven't dove into it too much, though even it can't be done exactly like that, I'm sure there would be another way to do it nicely.

I have another big project I need to hit up soon.... But if no one tackles it, I'll probably look at this ajaxexplorer, and integrating other remote auth methods (particularly phpmyadmin) in the future with ISPConfig.
