which is considered the best ftp server for linux - redhat
wu-ftpd is really popular. Your redhat currently comes with vsftpd, which is good.
Probably the most secure is your sshd, which you can access through sftp, and either users will need to have real accounts, or you'll have to set up a guest account.
I use pureftp ... serves it purpose...
proftpd or ncftpd (if you want to pay for it).
proftpd or vsftpd
I've used proftpd for a while. The only problem is I think they had a remote root vulnerability not to long ago. That scared me.
vsftpd, the most secure and best performing of them all. Good luck trying to configure the bastardly thing.
I use vsftpd with my TSL
meh, it's not all that bad. Just takes a little reading of the docs to figure out what it really wants. It IS pretty picky though.
I use proftpd, but usually have it turned off. As an earlier poster said, if you've got SSH access just copy files using that. SSH has in-built file transfer capabilities known as SFTP and/or SCP (secure copy). If you're on a *nix machine, type 'man scp' to get info on copying files... for windows, look at WinSCP or many other similar programs. That way you shouldn't have to install anything else on your server.
You DO have SSH, don't you?
hm i have samba installed if i want to transfer files, i just need ftp to have an ftp server, so people can upload/download from my site
