Re: Another FTP setup question
I would like to learn how to do this via vsftpd. Ive tried successfully using a GUI (gadmin-proftpd) but that got magically removed from the server by somebody/something.
SFTP is part of OpenSSH-Server
Then you can use SFTP it is related to SSH only in that it is part of SSH. You can connect to an SFTP server using regular clients like Nautilus, Dolphin and FileZilla. Even some regular editors, like Kate, can accept an SFTP address. The SFTP option is *secure*, the FTP option is neither secure nor securable. FTP is complicated to set up. SFTP works out of the box already if you have an SSH server running, it's part of the server.

In Windows i just install FileZilla Server and then set up the permissions to the folder and set up the access for the users.
I need to learn how to do this on Linux without the GUI.
