Ftp Server Software For Linux

Recommended Posts

I have just built a new machine purely for the purpose of acting as my FTP server whilst i'm at university. The intention is that i will send backups of my laptop home to my server in order to protect any work i have done in the event that my laptop gets broken or stolen or something.

 

I've installed slackware linux 10.2 onto the new machine and now require some FTP server software to run on it, i would ideally prefer a command line based software, but i need something relatively simple to install and set up. Does anybody have any ideas as to something i could use in this situation?

 

Thanks

 

Rob

I used Ubuntu Server Edition to run a ftp server for a little bit, the software I used was called vsftpd. Its pretty easy to configure, but I'm not sure if its the most powerful. It was perfect for my newbiness though :P. It was totally command line based also.
