Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-0089
2009-01-07 06:45:03
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.3.1
Release     : 8.fc10
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based directory
visibility.

This package defaults to the standalone behaviour of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.
