Re: What is the most secure FTP server?

my favorite alternative to ftp? YES! all, everything, anything. hell, dropbox is better than ftp.

but, just fire up your ssh server and out of the box, you've got tons of features - including file transfer.

here's another suggestion: don't, under any circumstances, ever use ftp. for clients on non-unix boxes, look at winscp or cyberduck.

I understand that regular FTP has inferior security due to the lack of encryption.  So I'm looking for an alternative to use on my home server.

What is your favorite alternative and why?  Implicit FTPS?  SFTP?  FTP over SSH?  Or something else?
