Remotly Control a FTP client

Almost. SSH to get onto the machine doing the work, and the screen program to allow you to attach to the fake terminal screen is providing. It's text-based only, but works fabulous.

There's nothing stopping someone from using SSH to control ftp directly, you don't even need a shell, just create a user whose shell is set to the ftp client.

And what program do you use to login with?  ;-)

What? You login with the ssh client.

That was Cooper's point. SSH is the SERVICE needed to be running and you need a client, like PuTTy or such to do the rest. Hence, PuTTy would be "the screen program to allow you to attach to the fake terminal screen is providing."

Well I assumed he meant the program called screen, which you don't need to use. There'd probably be a pseudo terminal if sshd was running on a *nix machine, but that's a device not a program. sshd is the service, and ssh and sshd are both part of SSH, or OpenSSH, or another implementation. Your apparent assertion that the client isn't part of SSH is wrong.
