So, while looking for a quick and easy FTP server analog to this popular Python trick:
$ python -m SimpleHTTPServer Serving HTTP on 0.0.0.0 port 8000 ...
I found a Stackoverflow post that shows Twisted has a one line FTP and more:
$ twistd -n ftp
-n option is for “nodaemon”; don’t daemonize and run in the foreground.
Just looking at the options for
twistd, it looks like you can also do
port-forwarding, SOCKS tunneling, a HTTP server, a DNS server, and more.
