FileZilla Server is a small and fast FTP Server. The server looks like the famous G6, but it is free.

I know Linux has a million FTP apps, but please port this one to Linux. I love the interface and the windows client support.

Absolutely love this program. Have run it for years with absolutely no problems whatsoever. Best thing since my previous favourite, Vermillion FTPD. It doesn't do everything, but what it does do it does very well.

Hey Reverb, as stated on the filezilla info page, and I quote "Support for SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) is not implemented in Filezilla Server. " The client piece supports SFTP. Hope that clears this up.
Reviewing 0.9.30 (Feb 1, 2009)
I also do a lot of backups with True Image also. You can use any FTP server to do your backups. However you will encounters problems if the server you are using does not properly implement the REST command, which True Image requires to verify and restore from. Likewise if you are downloading a large file but you are somehow disconnected from your FTP server and you want to resume the download REST must be supported. Otherwise it will start from the very beginning.
This new version 0.9.30 does properly support REST as I was able to pause then resume the download of a 100 MB file. With an earlier version I would get a "REST command invalid" in the server's log window.
You can make this portable by selecting the third option during install
"Do not install as service, start server automatically" - this will put the server in your autostart instead of a service. You can use msconfig or manually remove it from the registry after install.
Copy the Filezilla Server directory to your USB flash drive and create shortcuts for the following:
To start, "FileZilla server.exe" /compat /start
To start the interface, just run "FileZilla Server Interface.exe"
All settings are writting to "FileZilla Server.xml" and "FileZilla Server Interface.xml"
Once your done and want to shut down the server make shortcut:
"FileZilla server.exe" /compat /stop and click on to stop and remove it from memory.
Best portable FTP server out there, best free FTP server.

I do a lot of backups using True Image and FileZilla as the FTP recipient. I know backing up works flawlessly, but I'm not sure about restoring. Are you sure there are problems? I have True Image 9 and 11 and both seem to work fine for me. Also I should note, I'm doing this over a 100 to 1000Mbit LAN vs. WAN (aka Internet).
