Using sftp or scp is not just simpler in configuration, it has the
added benefit of being supported by cool gui applications (filezilla,
winscp, etc) that are available for multiple operating systems.

The only configuration change I make is to change the port used by
ssh.  That simple change eliminated most of the hacker attempts found
in various logs (failed logins, etc).
