Hi John,

	Good pointers but i'm not sure i'm up to setup a chrooted ssh 
environment.  I tried that a couple of times (not on this network) and 
it wasn't very practical.  I'm not saying i'm an expert at that and it 
may very well be my fault if i found it cumbersome.

	vsftpd is supposed to support FTPS so it would be perfect in my situation.
