Setting up a secure FTP and Tunneling Server


Hi. First of all, thank you for your help. Without LQ, I would probably half lost on what to do with all my other problems.

Ok, heres what I have!

CentOS 4.2

And this is what I want!

I want my server to act as an SSH tunnel, a VPN and FTP server. I want ALL connections to be encrypted.

Right now I have the SSH tunnel working (to an extent), PopTop is installed and I have Pure-FTP and VSFTP.

For my SSH tunnel to be perfect, I would like to install a socks proxy instead of using BitVise Tunnelier all the time.

I can connect to the VPN (poptop) but the VPN isnt connected to the internet.

I would prefer to use Pure-FTP but I dont know how to make Pure-FTP create and FTP account with every Linux User account. I also want all, and I mean ALL ftp trafic to be encrypted. I also need to enable server to server transfer (FXP), but i think i have already set that up. Right now I have configured VSFTP to do all of this but i dont know hwo to force encryption... If anyones knows, please help..


Any way. Thanks alot!
