My first thought as well. Pretty much every protocol invented is
better than FTP, in this case and most other cases.

Another question regarding the logging: I hope you include enough to
know if the node is working correctly or not. The logs that are
generated could also be deleted after a couple of minutes or an hour
as well, which might make it possible to log some more information if
necessary to verify functionality.

Great project though, a lot of people request this.
