sftpc) is a stand-alone FTP
client, and can be used as a drop-in replacement for the standard
sftpd, the Unix server, works in conjunction with a
system's existing FTP server daemon (
sftpd provides confidentiality and server authentication via
ftpd provides user authentication via
(for example) usernames and passwords.
SafeTP should run on any Unix system with a sockets library,
inetd, and an existing FTP server.
SafeTP is known to work on these platforms (the processor/version in parentheses are the particular instances that have been tested; it probably works with other combinations as well):
The configure script may work on other platforms too. If your platform isn't listed above, but you find it works (or doesn't!), drop me a line.
Porting SafeTP to new systems should be relatively easy. Please send me (email@example.com) any changes you find necessary.
Comments about SafeTP as a whole, including the protocol, should be sent to both Dan Bonachea and Scott McPeak.
Comments specific to the Unix implementation (sftpc/sftpd), or the Unix-oriented web pages, should be directed to Scott.
