    Hi, I need a little help on this one, I need to setup a 128bit secure ftp site where one of our clients can upload data. I have never set one up before and was wondering if there were any detailed steps or what is needed to do this.
    If this is helpful, we have a firewall running Corporate smoothwall and a static IP address where the current non secure ftp sites are directed(I didnot set these up)
    Thanks for you help guys

    The OSes involved will be fairly important.

    If Linux/Unix then it will aready be there - you just need to allow port 22 (ssh) through.

    If windows then it is a bit trickier - depending on which version.

    There are free versions of SFTP about though.

    How you set the trust between the boxes will be important.

    Just to start this off.... What OS are you going to use? What ftp server are you going to use? Have you decided? Have you even looked into the possible ftp servers yet? What are your authentication needs?
