As Michael pointed out in his response, you can use FTP over ssh or you can you do FTP with SSL. It's not as secure as ssh but I think it's a little easier to set up.

Of course, once you have ssh setup you could use it for more then just FTP (scp, remote commands, control your HMC, etc...). Scott's tutorial is very good.

FTP redbook (Shows how to set up FTP over SSL)

OpenSSH redbook (from 2006, anyone know of a newer one?)

Hello everyone,
I’m being asked to exchange some files with another system I on our network, but to not simply use ftp, but SSH FTP (Secure FTP). Does anyone know of a step by step to set this up? I’m thinking it might involve a certificate?

Thanks, Larry
