Real lightweight, good throughput, and no known buffer overflows or anything :) Can't be too bad - ftp.redhat.com runs on it, as does ftp.openbsd.org On my FreeBSD boxes I use lukemftpd, so far, there isn't much of a difference, lukemftpd can do a couple things that vsftpd can't - like chroot and kerberos/S-key authentication cheers, Rob -- "Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty." - Albert Einstein This is quote 76 of 1254. <snip ftp package guff> -- SLUG - Sydney Linux User's Group - http://slug.org.au/ More Info: http://lists.slug.org.au/listinfo/slug
