> Hello to all,
> The ftpd FreeBSD distribution is FTP verion 6.00 LS.
...the standard FreeBSD ftpd
> I noted that ftp.freebsd.org uses an FTP version DG-4.1.73
...the dgroot.com "it's-powerful-but-i-won't-give-the-source-away" ftpd
with several nice features -- it's tiny, it uses all sorts of
optimizations towards the os, it satisfies a lot of simultaneous
sessions, you wield the "powered by dg software" sign when you use it
> What the differences between the two ftpds?
6.00LS comes with your system
dgftpd is commercial software i think

i would not consider proftpd to be more secure than the freebsd ftpd.
proftpd is much too fancy, it suffers some feature-o-mania coding
approach, it is complex, thus error-prone. proftpd is not dgftpd.
i personally like lukemftpd, but that's just my preference. it lacks
decent logging to files, just syslog (at least the version i use).
> Or, what FTPd program should I use to obtain maximum security?
no, honestly, i would stick with the freebsd ftpd or lukemftpd in this
case. do you need fancy features? ratio? strange process limiting
abilities that act funky? you should use a KISS designed ftpd to get
improved security and, if possible, just leave it away in case your do
not really need it (scp/rsync over ssh is your friend)
