hi fellows,

i'm looking for a well performing ftp server. there will be >20 guys connected at once (connected via gbit). i should be able to deny or grant access for certain ip addresses on the fly - i don't want to have to restart the server all the time.

(i want to add just one user, and grant access through allowed ips)

can you recommend a piece of good software, which will satisfy my needs?

the best is glftpd. it's very scriptable and has everything you are looking for and a lot more. the only other consideration would be drftpd but glftpd is the best so try that out.

i've been looking on webmin.com for a third-party-modul to configure and administrate the server, but there seems to be no plugin :(

Proftpd works for me. Not sure if it's what you look for, but webmin supports it.
