I am a newbie and am looking to install an ftp server on my stand alone box. At my house I just use my local network but I wanted to hook my parents up and I need a way to send my movies to them. I was wondering if anyone could assist me and let me know which ftp server would be the easiest for newbie. Thanks.

You shouldnt need an FTP server. If you use mythweb, they should be able to access your recordings/videos directly via the mythweb interface (provided they have the mythweb password).

Also they are aren't the most computer literate I need to be able to send it to them. Is it possible to transfer files to the computer you connected to that is running mythweb.

Well, you do have sftp built-in to ssh which is much more secure than FTP. You can use filezilla as the sftp client on your windows or linux box to interface w/ the server.

Having tried many winxp file transfer methods, I'd recommend putting the server on the parents machine using the dead simple core ftp server available here:
http://www.coreftp.com/server/download/msftpsrvr.exe

It doesn't require installation, also makes it a great portable app, just double click to run. MS will ask if its ok to run and also unblock the firewall. Then fill in a user, password and directory. On their machine you could set up a directory for movies, C:\movies and then use that as the directory. Then click start. The program doesn't run as a service so when done transferring just click exit.

On your end from a command prompt:
sftp user@parentsIP
You'll be asked to accept a key.
Once connected use the command:
put movie-of-choice

If they have a router, you'll probably have to forward port 21 to their machine.

http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/MythWeb was the third hit on Google. I'd learn to use Google if I were you. People tend to become rude if you don't look for things first.

One of my favorite websites. Saw it on the mythtv-users mailing list and it has won a special place in my heart.

Mike, that is sensational! Now I'm going to waste a lot of time finding out how it works.
