    I read the post concerning the security vulnerability with ProFTPd. I was planning on making the switch to PureFTP but this has sped up the process. Does anyone know if PureFTP calculates bandwidth usage per account? I searched the forum and could not find an answer. I found a few posts where this was asked, but never saw a response. I believe at one time, that was an initial downside to PureFTP, is that it did not calculate bandwidth and ProFTPd did. I was just wondering if anyone could clarify this.

    Thanks

    As far as I know, this remains the same with Pure FTP bandwidth still not being calculated. I am not 100% sure though.

    What version are you on tanfwc? I am using proftpd for the same reason of metering, despite pureFTP being the better of the two otherwise.

    We've had some problems with this lately (sorry to bring up an old thread like this) and are running latest stable which should be around 10.8.1 S-31
    One of our customers is leeching 70Kb/s through a webcam that uses FTP to upload pics every second to his account. That's approx. 173GB per month!!

    We're using pureFTP atm and just switched over to ProFTP to see if it starts logging..
