Digging out other missing pieces
Ah, I found ftp
, I think. Its vsftpd
, otherwise known as the very secure file transfer protocol daemon
. Hmmm, still works with regular ftp clients which pass the password in cleartext. Doesn't sound *that* much more secure to me.
For a non-routable machine living deep within my firewall this is all completely overkill. Unfortunately there is no insecure plain vanilla FTPd, which would be more than sufficient for my needs.
