Re: ProFtpd vs. VsFtpd
Wow...cool to see this thread is still alive and generating some discussion. Since the time I originally posted my question, I have become much more familiar with SFTP, but I still haven't replaced my ProFTPd installation. It works great for what I intended. The comments about developers maintaining files or using rsync to upload the deltas don't reply to my scenario. I have clients that send me a new unique files every day. ProFTPd has worked really well. It's easy to administer the users and keep them isolated in their home directories. I was able to apply my Digicert SSL certificate. It has nice logs showing when users connect and when they transfer files. All in all, I've been very happy and would recommend it in that specific circumstance. I've also set up SFTP on a personal server for the use of me and a few of my friends. It's been fantastic, too. It was very simple to get going and it's been very reliable. My friends have no problem connecting to it using Filezilla.
Thanks to scorp123 and the other posters on this thread, I was able to find the right solution to my original issue and learn a lot about other solutions. I hope others find this thread as useful as it was for me.
