Feature request: SFTP server?

    I'll toss out that the next killer-app feature that HyperWRT needs for the SL platform is the SFTP subsystem. For sharing files on WAN. There's already the great setup that lets you enable SSH for WAN and it wisely does not default to port 22. That will keep the script kiddies out. Adding SFTP server would complete the utility of the SSH port.

    I understand Linksys took the quick answer with enabling plain FTP in latest firmware, but that is just crazy. An open FTP port will get pounded by script kiddies all day long.

    This may be outside the scope of Thibor's interest and time to code and that's cool. But I think it would be a killer feature and far superior to Linksys answer.
