yeah Im trying to set up a FTP server too. FTP doesn't encrypt passwords - sends them in plain text - so everyone between your box and the client's can sniff them.
Can someone recooment a ftpd that is easily configured for additional security, like, SSL or TLS... that would be cool
my server is fedora core 1, and vsftpd comes with the distro... I have trouble setting up the anonymous logins, and Ill probably go with pureftpd, as lots of guys are recommending it (www.pureftpd.org
), or maybe proftp.
