    I'm running bulletproof ftp server on my desktop in my dorm which I leave on all the time so that I can get to my files. I know FTP isn't all that secure so I was wondering what the best way to secure it would be? SSL?

    i would go for glftpd or ioftpd, use explicit TLS (SSL)

    and also don't use port 21 use a port of your own eg 4567
