FTP to FTP
Lately I've been seeing scans show up of a port 21 trying to connect to my
port 21 (I am not, BTW, running an FTP server). Is this just someone trying
to use my IP as the middleman in an FTP bounce attack, assuming my port 21
had been open and with a writeable FTP directory?
...Free/Open Source FTP client?
I am wanting your recommendations for an ftp client, but because I insist on
good-quality software I have specific requirements.
The client should:
- Be stable
- Be functional (i.e.. implement most/all ftp commands intuitively)
- Be free/Open Source
- Not to be "crippled" in any way
- Not prompt user with registration reminders
- Not be spyware-enabled
- Preferably not be adware-enabled
- Although it will be used mostly on the Windows platform, Java variants are
WS_FTP95 LE works great but I do not fulfill the requirements to use it
If you're tired of the spy/ad-ware FTP clients for Windows, try Filezilla.
Please post comments on Filezilla to grc.techtalk.

Interesting article :) http://www.theregister.com/content/55/36033.html
"There are several reasons why open-source software provides for superior computer and network security, but the computing public seems confused about why this is so."
I think he did a good job of summing up the advantages. I'm sure you could list a few more though. :)War doesn't determine who is right, it determines who is left.

Fifty-plus years ago Grace Hopper used her experiences with programming the
UNIVAC with FLOW-MATIC (an open-source project) to write her first compiler

that things haven't improved much since her day.

There have been numerous posts over the first half of this year
regarding SSL FTP services having issues with many clients. The
problems range from a file being held open after transmitting, the
server disconnecting after transmitting, or files transmitting 100%
