I.m gonna set up an ftp server on another box, sooner or later it will

an ftp module, should I stick with that?
vsftpd comes with FC6, and it is pretty secure.  In fact, "vsftpd"
stands for Very Secure FTP Daemon.  See http://vsftpd.beasts.org/#people
for some testimonials.

Er. I.m thinking of using Mandriva Linux (ducks & weaves), as I been
using it for a lot longer and know it a bit better.
Perhaps you should ask on that list, then?  I don't know about others on
this list, but I am certainly not a subject matter expert on Mandriva.

Or just use vsftpd on Mandriva.  It should work on any distro.

I was asking for ftp server software recommendations to see what people
were using. It is available in the MDK repositories so I will probably
go with it


i realize i'm a few days late coming in on this one, but I'd personally recommend pure-ftpd. Its very flexible, provides better virtual user support than vsftpd, and has a very clean security track record. Although I havent used it for anonymous ftp, I have been utilizing it as my primary ftp server for almost 7 yrs now. Going through the configuration file, it seems to offer many options towards anonymous ftp...
