Package description for 'vsftpd'

vsftpd is FTP server secure, extremely fast and stable.

 vsftpd is a GPL licensed FTP server for UNIX systems, including Linux.
 It is secure and extremely fast. It is stable.
 The only reason you might prefer a different FTP server to vsftpd is
 if you really need the configurability of one of the more bloated FTP
 servers. Having said this, note that vsftpd caters for the vast
 majority of use cases. Even if vsftpd appears to be missing a feature,
 it is often satisfied by an external component such as PAM or xinetd /
 tcp_wrappers. In this regard, vsftpd is being a small modular
 component in the proper spirit of UNIX. Finally, consider moving to
 vsftpd even if it means sacrificing some whacky feature of your
 current FTP server. The security, performance and stability gains are
 waiting for you.
