About Bftpd

The Bftpd file server is designed to be as small and easy to manage as possible, while providing most of the features you would expect from a file server. On most home systems, Bftpd is ready to work out-of-the-box without requiring any extra configuration. Production systems can be set up by editing a few lines in an easy-to-read config file.

Bftpd has been reported to run on Linux, BSD, routers and machines running read-only file systems.
