As you know, ftp is insecure, but you may have secured the files some other way.

Yes, files are pre-encrypted using shared passwords. Besides, stealing ad copy that's going to be published in a week is not all *that* lucrative. <grin>

I would suggest using pure-ftpd, it has great anonymous upload features. In fact, I use ftp upload too, only because the client requires it.

vsftpd for me. Speed, security, simplicity, and bundled with Red Hat and Fedora.

I don't know if FTP supports continuing a disconnected upload attempt.

Just as an FYI, yes, it does.

Different problems, different solutions.

I know what you mean. In order to cope with technically-inept clients, I'm thinking of moving to some sort of solution which starts with a web page where they can follow instructions and "click to insert" their files. I'm guessing all those options move me to HTTP anyway, right? At least then I can stick with HTTPS and get a decently secure connection.

Continuing a broken connection (especially for larger downloads or uploads) has been a godsend to me for years, though.
