powerful and widely used FTP server
This FTP daemon, originally from the Washington University of St. Louis,

The FTP protocol is a method of transferring files between machines on
a network and/or over the Internet.

1579 (and others), it adds the following features:
o logging of transfers,
o logging of commands,
o on the fly compression and archiving,
o classification of users on type and location,
o per class limits,
o per directory upload permissions,
o restricted guest accounts,
o system wide and per directory messages,
o directory aliases,
o filename filter,
o virtual host support (similar to the Apache HTTP server).
This release is maintained by the WU-FTPD Development Group as a
public service to the Internet.
