This is a pretty inane question, but what are the advantages and
disadvantages of using the ftpd that comes with FreeBSD and using WUFTPD?

thanks

wuftpd is much more feature-rich than the default one.  So if you're
going to setup a large anon ftp server, you will want to use wuftpd.

For a simple one (non-anonymous server, or anon server with only low
traffic and limited use), the default ftpd might suffice however.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)

 
 
 

1. ftpd default server vs wu-ftpd ?

Hi,

I was wondering if someone knows why ftpd default server coming with
freebsd is not wu-ftpd ?
What is that server and its advantages and drawbacks ?

Thanks in advance.                      Gildas.
