I would like to setup a Centos 4.3 FTP server using either FTPS or SFTP (I realize they are not the same). I would like to be able to upload my clients data to the server so they have something offsite and for archive purposes. This will be this units only job. I also have a SBS 2003 server and a Server 2003 system all on the same domain.

Comments, directions and suggestions appreciated.

Regards,

Brian

rpm -qf /usr/bin/sftp
openssh-clients-3.6.1p2-33.30.12

sftp is part of the openssh packages.  

rpm -qa |grep openssh
openssh-3.6.1p2-33.30.12
openssh-server-3.6.1p2-33.30.12
openssh-clients-3.6.1p2-33.30.12

if you're using yum, install those 3 packages with
yum install openssh openssh-server openssh-clients

then you should be able to sftp in using whatever sftp client you are using.

by default everything is in place in CentOS to do exactly this.  All you should have to do (for SFTP) is simply connect with a client.  PSFTP (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html) and WinSCP (http://winscp.net/eng/index.php) are two excellent clients to test this out with.  Assumming SSHd is running, all you need to do is enter the user/password information for the ssh account you wish to connect as and it should place you in the home directory for that account upon login.
