    Best FTP Server

    ok need a good ftp server for windows features should include ::
    good security
    ability to limit folders/files users are allowed access to
    ability to change file permisions (chmod) remotly through ftp client
    reliable
    Resume support
    ability to set reconnection attempt times to stop hammering

    has anyone used GuilgFTP before - is it any good?

    Openssh latest ssh daemon

    Great ssh remote connection, including an sftp server ( secure ftp over ssh2)

    thanks shrekkie but i can't find any mention about ability to set file permissions through FTP client which is the most important area atm - as there are plenty of ftp servers out there that fill the other requirments but very fewi have seen with the ability basically to allow chmod (a *nix term but you know hat i mean ) does OpenSSH support this??

    exit                          Quit sftp
    quit                          Quit sftp
    rename oldpath newpath        Rename remote file
    rmdir path                    Remove remote directory
    rm path                       Delete remote file
    symlink oldpath newpath       Symlink remote file
    version                       Show SFTP version
    !command                      Execute 'command' in local shell
    !                             Escape to local shell
    ?                             Synonym for help
    sftp>

    If you run cygwin on windows, you can run vsftp. A super fast, super secure ftpd. It's used by many big name sites that run public FTP servers.
