    Release Notes: NcFTPd can now handle group entries whose lines in /etc/group are longer than 511 characters. Support for alternative password encryption algorithms (such as Blowfish) on Linux was improved. Compatibility fixes were made for Solaris 10, HP-UX 10 and SunOS 4. New options include allow-mls and count-only-files-owned-by-user-towards-quota. A user is no longer automatically disconnected if a data connection failed as a result of a firewalled PORT, but after a failure the user will be forced to use PASV. A bug where a ncftpd_passwd database could be locked for extended periods of time was fixed. Bugfixes were made for the NcFTPd quota subsystem. A bug where existing files beginning with a space could not be deleted was fixed.

            NcFTPd is a fine ftp daemon... interQ uses it for both our consumer and corporate ftp applications. Mostly for users to upload their web pages.

            I think the $199 fee per server is cheap for what NcFTPd features:

            * easy installation w/o chroot tree necessary for anonymous ftp, /bin/ls, etc
            * security -and- speed
            * built-in quotas
            * built-in QoS to limit incoming -and- outgoing bandwidth
            * no-fork philosophy
