Hi, ordinarily perhaps yes, if I could only figure out how to set it up 
on the FreeBSD box.  As always, the "Manuals" though no doubt correct and 
complete as a "reference", are no good to people who don't already know 
"How To" do it.

Originally, the FTP was purely for other machines at home to periodicaly 
dump data for some pages of the small website it also hosts.  There was 
(is) no need for SFTP for that, as all the machines are in the same room 
at home.

Thanks for the reply.
