Not for use with real passwords

This server stores password in clear-text configuration file. The password is even displayed on the server main form. If your scenario requires a higher degree of security and you have enough time to go through choosing, obtaining, learning, configuring and securing a full-featured SFTP server, go for it.

Just need to test that your SFTP client works
