Welcome to the FTP server for the WU-FTPD Development Group

This server is the primary distribution site for the WU-FTPD daemon.

The pub directory contains the distribution and supporting files.

If you are uploading contributions, please place them in the incoming
directory and email address@hidden announcing your upload.
