Secure FTP

Hello! I want to be able to run a secure ftp connection between my RedHat machine (server) and a board running uClinux. I'm very new to all this, can someone point me in the right direction... where I might find some reading material on these subjects? I've looked at vsftpd and ssh, but to be honest I'm not sure how to actually use these things.

Thanks a bunch,

Run sshd (server for ssh) on the machine that's serving and then connect to it from the other machine by doing:

sftp username@machine.address

copy files using:

scp file destination

If you connect with sftp you can just put files with "put filename" and get with get. Change local dirs with lcd and remote with the usual cd as an example as commands for the local comp are preseded with an l.
