Subject: Secure FTP Server Search
I am looking for a secure FTP server which has less
vulnerabilities compared to IIS. Besides
functionality, it is important to be tightly secure &
not to have some vulnerabilities related with FTP
commands such as FTP PORT / SITE / NLIST.
Any recommedations & comments are wellcome.
I'm not sure if you want SFTP or a 'secure' ftp daemon.
If you want a plain old ftpd, then I've had good luck with pure-ftpd--
http://www.pureftpd.org. It specifically doesn't do all of the
'features' of ftp, but has all the basic functionality you'll need.
