Who runs a ftp server .....

Just a quick question what port number would be good to run a private ftp server?

Probably best to leave it as the defaults otherwise you may run into problems with peoples firewalls blocking connections.

My suggestion would be to just make sure you get yourself a half decent (read secure) ftp server and disable anonymous access. I suppose going one step further would be to limit access to port 21 by ip address ,if you know where the requests will be coming from that is. That would be dependant on your router/firewall/os choice though and sometimes isnt exactly convenient.

Yeh at the moment i am on port number over 5000 to stop people seeing my ftp while on port scan.

I dont' have any anonymous access anyway, but u are correct i allow 1 connection per ip per account, and people get not a too bad d/l speed from me 28kbps...
