If you are working with something that already has the ftp protocol
built in, set up vsftpd which should be included with Redhat.  If you
control both ends, use some variation of scp or sftp which will run
over ssh, and if you have a complete copy of the site where you edit
and preview, you can use 'rsync -essh ...' to copy the changes over
with only ssh on the target end.
