Uftpd | No Nonsense FTP Server

Fork me on GitHub

Tired of confusing configuration files and security features you don’t need?

Try uftpd — the no nonsense (T)FTP server built just for you!

  • FTP and/or TFTP support
  • No configuration file
  • Listens to port ftp/tcp and tftp/udp found in /etc/services
  • Serves files from the ftp user’s home directory
  • Run from inetd or as a standalone daemon
  • Run as root, with chroot and privsep, or as a regular user

Disclaimer: uftpd is not intended for use on the Internet, it is intended for home users, developers of embedded systems (me), or other users inside an already secured local area network. If you want something really secure, you should probably try vsftpd

Want to know why this exists? If you’re really interested, read my rant for background and context :)
