    file access security over the internet


    So I have an ftp server that I use to access my files where ever I go. I am running vsftp and fail2ban. I also use ssh to access the server.

    My question - is there any more secure way of accessing my files other than ftp? The reason I use ftp is because I can get to my files through a browser on any OS.

    Your thoughts please .

    Thanks,

    Geese

    Yes, there is.
    You can shutdown the FTP.

    Instead, use an SFTP client to do the file transfers directly over SSH.

    Hmmm yes, this looks like it would do. I will investigate further.

    Thanks.
