Because as yet, I have not figured out how to get ProFTP or PureFTP 
installed and WORKING without bricking the machine.  There is no step by 
step "how to" (that I've yet found) with also guidance as to how to work 
arround the inevitable issues that occur.   The man pages are just 
command references, not an instruction book on how to use them.  Sorry.

Hence, I'm using the native OS's inbuilt FTP facility.  Even that took me 
3 days to get going in the first instance.  (file Access rights issues 
and poor, even if correct, documentation.)
