Proftpd has always been my ftp server of choice. It's fast, stable, and doesn't have many security holes at this point (though one has been discovered recently, don't know much about it though). Also, it's easy to setup, making it the best choice for newbies.

VSFTPd is terrible, proftpd works well

The best one I've seen with the fewest vulnerabilities is VSFTPd. Secure and fast in the tests I've done in wargames and on our wargame server.

WHY did you bump a topic more than 5 years old to make a baseless statement....


I was gonna write some C++, but then I got high
I was gonna skip all that .NET stuff, but then I got high,
Now I'm stuck with non-deterministic finalization, and I know why.
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high.

after beating my head against getting VSFTPD for 4 months trying to get it to recognize local users that are not root accounts from giving me a "530 Login Incorrect" error with the proper username and passwords being used.. I'm going with Justin Buser on this one. It is terrible, I found this thread through google trying to find something else to try out.

I take it you're a novice, then. When it comes to Linux, and vsftpd? What distribution are you using?
If you want, I can install and configure it correctly for you.

vsftpd, because of it's security. Most of the big linux repo's rely on it.
