Re: DO NOT use ftp, use something else

Yeah, and FTP is not encrypted, so all data can be sniffed. lftp? I don't think so, ncftp is the best there is. And as the parent said, don't use ftp for something like this. rsync is the right tool, and can be encrypted. I know ftp can be tunneled with SSH, but not by default. Even scp is better than ftp.

BTW, why don't linux.com fix the stupid captcha so it works as it should?
