Secure FTP via SSH Tunnel

Author: JT Smith

LinuxSecurity: "When I travel, I keep my remote files on two servers: a Unix server and an NT
server, each serving a specific purpose. For my office files (Word documents and
such), I access an NT server running PCAnywhere and use the "File Transfer"
option - bandwidth permitting (not suggested over a 56K dialup connection). For
my Web data, I access a Unix server that incorporates a standard FTP daemon
and OpenSSH.

This article will point out the differences between standard FTP and secure FTP
using some real-world examples."
