SQOTD - which FTP server to use?


SQOTD = "stupid question of the day"

Running Debian 5. I have a small server that needs to provide anonymous ftp service (download only) to the folks in my dept (we have a firewall that will keep outsiders out, so I'm not worried about outside folks getting to the files).

The question is: which anonymous ftp server should I install?

Something that can be installed via "apt-get install xyzzy", where I can edit the /etc/xyzzy.conf file to point to the /home/ftp directory, and start/stop it with /etc/init.d/xyzzy start|stop|restart command.

40 views and no replies. I think I'll ask the mod to move this to the server group. :-)

So.... anyone in the server group want to take a crack at this (rather simplistic) question?
