ssl is broken/breakable
if you want to have secure ftp ... no sniffable passwd or data
from either windoze or *nix ...
debian# scp -p ftp.server.com:/pub/somedir/data.xxx ~
- use a gui if scp is too complicated
or doesn't do what you need like copy foo*.*
- or -
ssh login into the orther server and run your normal mount
commands and copy data over ssh ...
- normally client mount the ftp server
and servers do not mount clients
debian# ssh ftp-server
ftp-server# mount debian:/home/you /home
but for this case, it'd seem silly
and is a bad idea
- or -
ftp-server# ssh debian
debian# mount ftp-server:/home/you /home
but why would you do that ???
- or - dozen other ways
windoze# filezilla - point-n-click-heaven
ftp.server.com -- just install sshd
