Can someone recommend a free/opensource FTP server.

I just wondered what other people were using and could recommend.

Thanks

I use slimftpd. It consumes extremely little RAM (2MB at the moment, noone connected), but needs to be restarted for every change in configuration.

Thanks, ill take a look at them both.

Im looking for an FTP server where I can add accounts using the command line or config files.

I just checked out Filezilla Server, it also uses a config file for user accounts.

I recomend FileZilla - there's a decent server and a fully featured client - see http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/

I think im going to go with filezilla.

You can update the config xml file then run a command to tell filezilla to reload the config, without restarting.

Perfect :)

I've used filezilla a couple of times over the last year and it works pretty good.

I used to use WarFTP, but switched to Filezilla. Much better.
