    can anyone advise on a glftpd replacement on freebsd64 ? - seeing as it looks like dev has stopped and it crashes on x64, vsftpd isn't an option for a few reasons

    an ftp where i dont have to have the accounts on the system for people to connect, with glftpd you could do that by using userfiles - someone has suggested wzftpd , but i have never used it, and i have looked into using pam/sql for vsftpd but that seems like to much of a mess about.

    that just for use with pure-ftpd or you mean it can be used with any ftpd ?

    indeed it would - as even though near every distro has a 64bit version of itself a lot of the programs are still rooted in 32bit

    edit: i have wzdftp working :) - but more than likely going to use 32bit
