    I have a home computer behind a router and I really need an FTP server to access my files from not only from other computers in my LAN, but also from my school, work, friend's house, starbucks, etc. I haven't found a tutorial on this forum, so I figured I'd ask around.

    thanks, I'll let you know if these help!

    yes, they helped a bunch. i'm also looking to really improve the security, since the second tutorial bright to light the fact that the username/password combo is sent in clear text. Security may be compromised by any firewall or packet sniffer. So is there a tutorial specifically discussing security measures for ftp?

    Set-up an SSH server on the box with the FTP server. You can tunnel the connection to the FTP over SSH.
