The ftpd package provides a simple Tcl-only server library for the FTP protocol as specified in RFC 959 ( It works by listening on the standard FTP socket. Most server errors are returned as error messages with the appropriate code attached to them. Since the server code for the ftp daemon is executed in the event loop, it is possible that a bgerror will be thrown on the server if there are problems with the code in the module.
