That'd be OK for a desktop computer. But this is a remote machine that
services a few users and needs to have normal services.
I don't care about anonymous ftp, but how else am I(and a couple of users)
supposed to get files from the machine(conveniently)?
I've always considered an ftp daemon to be a neccessary part of a base
install. If wu-ftpd has been fixed I don't see why I shouldn't use it,
unless there's something else I should know about it. If there is, please
