Cool FTP Server


Ok..i would like to set up a FTP server, so i can upload and download with friends. In the old days of windows i used one called serv-u. Can anyone guide me to a (preferably free) ftp server i can use with my suse10?

this is the main website

http://www.proftpd.org/

and you can get a copy as an RPM, I;ve never used suse so I'm not sure about the default ftp program for it. Although proftpd is very popular and very easy to use, once setup it's wonderful

a tutorial for proftps can be found here

hope this helps and good luck with your project

Hello,

I would suggest you to use SFTP to transfer files.
The other suggestion u received was to use another distro so you could setup proftpd easier. but proftpd is easy to setup. If you're not familiar with it, just type it proftpd howto on google and you'll see how easy it is.

If you preffer to use SFTP, SUSE already have all ther required software to do that and should be started if you didn't shutdown.

type man sftp or man scp to get the command list. You'll see it's very flexible.
