Replace all ftp clients with pure-ftpd

Post by ghettopi »

Hi,

Please considering replacing both the current ftp clients we have in dietpi-software with this one: https://www.pureftpd.org/project/pure-ftpd/

It is a clearly better alternative than both the unsecure ftp clients that are offered with dietpi. It's also available in dozens of different languages and it has a tiny memory and cpu footprint.

Even openssh-sftp would be a better idea than what we currently have. It's disappointing that dietpi doesn't come with a secure ftp option OOTB.

Hi,

if you switch SSH client from Dropbear to OpenSSH (within DietPi Software Catalog), you will have an OOTB SFTP Server running.

Yes looks good that program!

Perhaps openssh would be a better standard for dietpi, dropbear doesn't support 2FA also.

Greetings
