XS4ALL has stopped providing ftp in the middle of 2017: now you can use sftp or sftp.

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/03

As of 20170711, the servername does not support the ftp protocol any more; xs4all clients can only use the server on port 22.

I missed that because I hardly use ftp except for the few rare occasions where I was in an environment without ftp.

So recently I found out: good move!

Since I still need this every now and then (but far less often than 10 years ago), I have set up a very small ftp server at home with limited storage and very limited users that I can turn on/off when needed.

Much better solution.
