What are Serv-U, War FTP and Bullet Proof FTP Server?

Since the name of the latter program was changed from Gene 6, newbies have had less trouble guessing its purpose. Here's a further clue: War FTP and Serv-U do exactly the same thing.

For those of you still fumbling in the dark for answers, these are all FTP server clients, which allow you to setup your computer as a file distribution system known as an FTP site. These allow you to selectively share your data with people who you have given your IP (internet protocol) address to.

When you log into an FTP site, the name of the server software being employed is usually one of the first details about the server to be displayed by your FTP client.
