Hi,

I am trying to setup freeftpd and the ftp service starts but sftp service will not.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  I am using Server 2003 OS.

sftp uses ssh, do you have a ssh server installed?  You do not need a ftp service to use sftp.

Go to the freeFTPd site and download the freeSSHd program.

Ok, I get the error 'You dont have Administrator rights'.  I did allocate rights in both the application and the computer

When do you get this?  During the install, or while attempting to start freeSSHd?
