Someone asked whether lukemftpd offered functionality other(s) don't ?
What about proxy ?
I've never been sure which ftpd to run on my gateway (with IPFW, with no NAT)
to provide proxy, so internal hosts could cd /usr/ports; make fetch
I've tried various ftpd's but never got the right combination of ftpd &
client host environment variables (+ipfw), + some feeling of safety,
as not wanting (most the time) to allow incoming ftp from internet
to my gate (or beyond !), & some ftpd descriptions don't sound secure.
Any reccomendations please of working combinations of ftpd's & env. vars
& ipfw rules from people succesfully running make fetch
on internal client hosts via proxy ftpd's on gateway, without NAT ?
(Apache on gate works as http proxy already with IPFW & with no NAT).
