Anonymous FTP daemon

'pftpd' is an implementation of an anonymous FTP daemon written from scratch. It uses multithreading and/or sendmail() (where available) in order to be lightweight, but still have high performance. It also has a built in "ls", can optionally "contain" the available environment using chroot, and supports user-specific anonymous directories, and active, passive, and restartable transfers.
