Setup and Anonymous FTP server on FreeBSD

To test the speed differences between SFTP and FTP I decided to setup an anonymous FTP server on my trusted old 266 Mhz Celeron running FreeBSD 7.0.

The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) provides a simple and classic method for transferring files from one computer to another across the internet.

FreeBSD base install includes FTP server software, namely ftpd.

I'm fully aware of the security implications regarding FTP's transmission of usernames and passwords in clear text hence the choice of an anonymous FTP server in real-only mode.
