FTP server

Muddleftpd has been designed from the ground up to be an efficient, configurable FTP server that can be run as root or user. It includes its own list functions and never executes external programs. It is highly portable and secure, and lets users set up a variety of configurations, from traditionally heavy to zero use of the password file. Authentication modules make supporting multiple authentication methods easy and writing methods easier. These modules can even be loaded dynamically into the server as it runs. Commands can be disable on a per group basis. these is PAM and non-system password file support.
