Chapter 25. FTP Serving > Using wu-ftpd as a Replacement for the Default ftpd

Using wu-ftpd as a Replacement for the Default ftpd

If you decide to activate anonymous FTP, especially anonymous FTP with an upload directory, you should consider replacing the default ftpd with a modifiable ftpd. A popular, highly configurable replacement ftpd is wu-ftpd, available at http://www.wu-ftpd.org. In addition to being highly configurable, it easily compiles under OS X.

Although popular and highly configurable, wu-ftpd is not exempt from security problems. It is still important to regularly monitor the anonymous FTP area, if you have one, as well as make sure that you have the latest version of wu-ftpd, which is version 2.6.1, as of this writing.
