bftpd is a very configurable Linux FTP server which can do chroot without special configuration or directory preparation. It will work out-of-the-box with almost no configuration required, and works on all Unix variants tested. Most FTP commands are supported, and user authentication is done via passwd/shadow or PAM. tar/gzip on-the-fly is supported.
Release Notes: This release corrects a number of bugs with the Makefile and configuration parsing. The Makefile now respects the --prefix setting and is able to install Bftpd to uncommon locations, such as parts of the filesystem without /etc, /usr, or sbin directories. Configuration parsing is now more tolerant of unexpected spaces and end-of-line comments, and should load faster than before.
Release Notes: This version includes a fix for dealing with named pipes. Previously performing a directory listing on a directory that included a named pipe would cause Bftpd's connect to stall. This release provides a work-around so that directory listings complete cleanly.
Release Notes: This release fixes a potential bug in the way Bftpd binds to a socket.
Release Notes: This release adds a new value to the SHOW_HIDDEN_FILES variable. Hidden files can now be shown to the client always, upon request, or never.
Release Notes: A configuration default which could allow anonymous users to have more access to the server than intended was fixed. By default, Bftpd now blocks anonymous logins, so any access must be turned on by the admin.
