glFTPd is a free FTP server for UNIX based systems. It is highly configurable and its possibilities are endless.

One of the main differences between many other ftp servers and glFTPd is that it has its own user database which can be completely maintained online using ftp site commands. glFTPd runs within a chroot environment which makes it relatively safe.

Here are some key features of "glFTPd":
Virtual users and groups
Bandwidth throttling (global and per user)
Upload/Download ratio support
On the fly CRC calculating of files being uploaded
Script support on almost all commands and operations
Online user management (add/remove/edit users using site commands)
Built-in statistics viewable using site commands
Encryption support through TLS/SSL integration
ACL Support
Many more ...

What's New in This Release:
Fix: check return value of fclose when uploading file, somehow NFS likes to fail to close a file
Fix: when upload error occured do silent zipscript check after the error was sent to client
Fix: There where some problems with CHOWN when moving files across disks
Fix: Installer updates by psxc (now it should also work with fedora core 3, which has no `which` command)
Fix: few small typo's in the docs
Fix: the first abor response line had a multiline-indicator which was wrong
Change: tls cleanup
Fix: tls errors will now go to error.log instead of syslog
Fix: when glftpd will no longer loop it if crashes during logout
