ftp server...


I'm running red hat server 9 and am about to set up a ftp server on that machine I've seen references to wu-ftp, proftp, and sslftp. my install has wu-ftp by default but before I start setting it up I want to make sure that I am using the right product

All I want is to set up directories that people can log in to with accounts or anonymously I don't think there's much more to an ftp server than that anyway... can anyone tell me what would be the best to use

Any will work for what you want to setup but I would either go with proftpd or sftp. Go with sftp if you want it to be more secure.. but proftpd has the better track record of stability and security over wu-ftpd.

Regards.

proftpd is excellent and it's my FTP server of choice. It has had SSL support for a while now, and that's nice if you like security.
