Recommendations of a FTP?....

I have two VBox VM’s 1) is my Drupal development, 2) is my Drupal production.

I would what is a good or best single FTP or combination to use. I want to publish from the dev to the pro VM:

  1. filezilla - GUI FTP and SFTP Client,

or

  1. yast2-ftp-server - using pure-ftpd or vsftpd with gftp - Multithreaded FTP Client for X11

or any other recommendation?

My personal suggestion is to go for ssh based connection (sftp, scp, ssh etc.).

You might want to take a look at unison. It is used to synchronize two
directories, such as those on your development machine and those on your
production machine.

I would need one also with a GUI ftp server monitor? FileZilla has a nice one but for windows only.

Where can I find documentation on how to setup a ssh environment. The ftp modules that I’ve used so for doesn’t give the complete control over my system.

I want to be able monitor, kick and configure ftp connections. Is the ssh environment anything like FileZilla were is gives you complete control of both sides of the service?

Well, after just turning on sshd and installing YaST SSHD Configiration Mod, then connecting with FileZilla Client was very easy, and all I have to do is us the System Monitor.

Now, how do I connect from the client using Dolphine, Krusader or what other client do I use with ssh?..

…going to do some checking around in the Software Manager…
