[most secure, open source, client/server file transfer program]


What is the best or most secure open source file transfer program? I have a feeling most of you will recommend one that uses the sFTP protocal. For all you board programmers out there: This area seems to need expansion. Feel free to discuss this issue in any way you see best fit to come to a conclusion.

sftp is a good protocol... However something very simple is apache + ssl + dav publishing - Works well for me (fast, efficient, and you don't need a sftp client)....

Is there anything better than ssh? And then I guess it depends on the cipher you use.

Anything with less vulnerabilities, and possible exploits (inferred by the history of ssh).

SSH'll do it for you. Now making it EASY is something Konqueror is good at! Open up a window and type fish://username@hostname. Boom, you're using the file browser over SSH.

OO OO! And if you want to permanently mount them, use SHFS, http://shfs.sourceforge.net .
