I have used RASPBMC for a while with XBMC and on it I have been able to connect via FileZilla on regular FTP to transfer logfiles and such.
Now I have bought a second Pi to use as a VPN server for when I am going away from home. On this I have installed RASPBIAN from the January 2014 download.
When installing PPTP VPN server (as I had already done on the raspbmc Pi) I also wanted to check the log-files after testing it so I tried to connect with FileZilla like I had to the first Pi.
But it refused connection!
Very strange, I thought that the ftp was part of the operating system, but apparently not on raspbian.
So how can I enable ftp on this new raspbian Pi?
And how can I see which ftp is installed on the first Pi (raspbmc).
I have googled and all kinds of strange tutorials and suggestions come up with various different ftp servers...
I don't want to get something else than just the plain stock ftp server allowing me to read/write the files on the Pi more easily than cutting/pasting into nano in a PuTTY session...
