I am a old Linux box (RH 5.1) and I need to have ftp server setup for it.
But I don't need and can not install any of the latest secure servers.
Any one knows how can I find just a basic ftpd server?
Thanks

In RH 5.1 it was wu-ftpd-2.4.2b18-2.1 shipped with the server. It's NOT SECURE and has huge security bugs.

If you like to install it, just get an RPM package, you may get it here:
http://rpm2html.osmirror.nl/redhat-archive/updates/5.1/en/os/i386/wu-ftpd-2.4.2b18-2.1.i386.html

or direct RPM link: http://redhat-archive.osmirror.nl/updates/5.1/en/os/i386/wu-ftpd-2.4.2b18-2.1.i386.rpm
