can you recommend a FTP server which

  • supports MODE C (Compression)
  • and runs on Windows or Linux or BSD

Note, that MODE C is different from MODE Z (ZLIB). Most FTP servers on *nix and windows does support mode Z. However I'm aware of only one FTP server which supports MODE C and it runs only IBM Z/OS (successor of OS/390) on IBM Mainframes.

For details on MODE C see section 3.4.3

I checked a whole bunch and I didn't find anything. I think you would have to write one yourself.
