Okay, I am a newbie to setting up servers and working with them. I followed the tutorial "The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gusty Gibbon 7.1" to set up the server. My question is: what is the difference between using FTP and using SSH? Doesn't SSH use a type of FTP protocol? If this is the case can't I use PUTTY on a client computer to access the server to run commands and transfer files? And if that is the case why do I need to have ProFTPD installed on my system? Let me know please. Thanks for all help that I've have received thus far on these forums.
