    You cannot without modifying the configs which I highly suggest against. If you want something like ftp get a client that supports "scp" which is filetransfers over ssh. It is secure and if you have direct root login with ssh turned on (which by default is) then it will give you the same access.

    That, and SecureCRT (shell access) are the programs I use.

    Yes, Filezilla has built in FTP over SSH support (sftp).
