Thanks for that - very useful ...

I note that proftpd on RaspianWheeze does not permit a root login by default when accessed via Internet Explorer -> Page (to Windows Explorer) whereas the FTP server on RaspBMC does.

Any advice on that one?

Thanks

Start SSHD ( for example from raspi-config on newest raspbian )
and use SFTP over SSH ( Login with login pi password raspberry )

Much more secure then FTP. No need to install other software on rPi

I'm a newb, I setted to start ssh during boot time, how can I use SSHD to avoid an ftp server installation?

ops..sorry, it is already ready, I had only to set SFTP in filezilla client config :-)

How do we get this to work with a non-root user so that they only have sftp access to a single folder?

Thanks.

What if I wanted to grant a friend of mine the permission to upload files to my pi from remote? Is it possible to do it in a secure way?
