I would put in Chapter 14 - File Servers as section 2, bumping the others
down. It could refer to Chapter 6 - Section 1 - OpenSSH Server.

And then the nonexistent destination reference(s) in Chapter 14 - Section 1
FTP Server (one of two copied below):

"If you are looking to transfer files securely see SFTP in the
section on OpenSSH-Server."

could be changed to point to an actual useful reference.

If you want to proceed please edit the wiki [1] and add the new section,
put your name on it and set it to "in progress". Or I'll do it if you want.
