Why not WU-FTPD?

I've been using WU-FTPD for half year.It runs fine without any serious problem.

ProFTP but mainly because it comes right out of the box on slackware and I'm too lazy to try out the others

gFTP is for browsing, not serving...
That's my favourite ftp browser though (I miss this poll about FTP browsers...)

I haven't seen pure-ftpd here, unless that is the "Pure FTP Server" option

I use vsftpd for security, performance and stability reasons. Anybody using wu-ftpd should think about security...

....

markus1982,maybe you are right.Because my FTP server is very small-scale.For my personal use.

However,my ex-college uses wu-ftpd too.I definitely think that they don't know the security problem of wu-ftpd.But I might say,if you use it as a small-scale use and keep updated,it will definitely decrease the possibility of being hi-jacked.
