Just wanted to suggest adding ftp to the "Traditional File-sharing" section.

i am not sure of what this dude is wanting it, but just want to say, i do think he has a semi-valid point, cause i asked about large file tranfers, and someone posted: Ftp << just ftp nothing else...

if it is a valid way to share files it might be cool to have a guide on it, you have good guides on all other ways to share :wink:

ftp isnt peer to peer.

plain ol server > user thats been around since the start of the internet.

just file downloading. not sharing.
FINE! downloading *IS* stealing. I still don' t care. I'm still going to do it. And laugh while i do!

FTP is centralized and commonly used for darknets. Not many people running an FTP server can likely handle the bandwidth requirements for sharing large files and they are very easy to trace.

I can't imagine how it would be used here. I wouldn't post my FTP servers to the public. That's a great way to get someone using it to share massive amounts or porn.

A few years back I had some FTP servers where I worked with anonymous read/write permissions so I could access large files from customer locations. My net admin caught someone using it to share porn when our companies bandwidth got trampled. So I had to secure it w password.

It's an old great protocol but sharing it publically is not a good idea.
