Why? Please explain. What do you use to customize your page?

In order to use the macromedia, I have to install an FTP programmer on our server. Some examples of FTP programs are SmarterFTP and WS_FTP. Which one are you using and does it bring any security flaws on the system?

No you don't.

Big ones.
I'm sure Dreamweaver supports SCP/SFTP, which is way more secure. The good news is if you can SSH to your server then you're already running an SCP/SFTP server. Try it.

Thanks for the feedback let me try that first. I was going to install FileZilla FTP Server as an alternative.

Benefits of FileZilla:

secure file transfer via SSL/TLS (can be required) or even Kerberos
takes up little hard drive space (max is ~10.3 MB)
comes without the IIS security concerns you would have if you deployed FTP services via Windows (IIS required)

But let me try what you're recommending first. Do you have a support article on SCP/SFTP. I will google around to see.

Added after 4 minutes:

Thanks that worked for me.

Broadbandvoice, and Stavros mentioned it, FTP is unsafe. I used to work with FTP and it is one of the worst things you would want to do. Do not install FTP servers if you want to avoid possible troubles. On windows, I use WinSCP to access Linux servers. It uses the same protocol as SSH and it has files browser windows just like any FTP client softwares. Unfortunately, Dreamweaver does not directly support SCP or SFTP. But even if it did, I wouldn't have used it cause Dreamweaver is incredibly slow when it comes to transferring files.

Cheers

Broadbandvoice's report of success would tend to indicate that Dreamweaver does support SFTP. A quick google shows screenshots with an 'SFTP' tickbox in the FTP configuration; an odd place to put it, I'll grant you.

Oh, that is a good news for those who need it. I just looked at the pull down list looking for SFTP or FTP. I should dig a little dipper. You are right. It does have a check box that says "Use Secure FTP (SFTP)".
