Actually Hangdog it looks like I dont have much of a choice. I cannot allow real users to login to an FTP server and allow their passwords to be sent in clear text. Convenience should always come second to security. And you are right, I need to make an operational determination of whether or not real users accessing the site is necessary. Ultimately, if the answer is yes, then I will be forced to either require SSL traffic for all connections or run two seperate FTP deamons (an option which I had not considered until lithos pointed it out).

lithos: what kind of performance hit can I expect from running two FTP deamons? Will it take up a lot of resources?

For real users, have you considered scp/sftp (part of the ssh pkg) ?
I'm assuming you have some ctrl/authority over 'real' users?

Thats actually one of the ways that I'm connecting now. However my real users cannot connect via FTPS TLS. Its giving me error 530 incorrect password...

I must have accidently changed something because this wasnt happening before. Does anyone know why this is happening? I'm using the right username/password combo
