I want to install wu-ftpd-2.6.2, and I have install it using these:
./configure && make && make install && ./build lnx && ./build install
all these order are passed ,and then ,the install file tell me I should restart inetd,using
killall -HUP inetd
I am using RH9, I don't know whether it is right ,
and also ,it tell me I should configure the ftp configure file /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd
but I can't find the wu-ftpd file ,even no ftpd under the /etc/xinetd.d
The problem is that because you're building the package from source, it's not completely integrated in with Red Hat's setup.
You can copy one of the other things in /etc/xinetd.d and modify it to match ws-ftpd, but I agree with the previous poster -- you're better off with vsftpd. It's what Red Hat uses by default for FTP now, it's on the CDs, and it will put a vsftpd file in /etc/xinetd.d for you, so that it's easy to get xinetd to work with it.
If you're using this box inside a firewall, and you really like ws-ftpd, go ahead and use it (but remember, since it's not an RPM, you're going to have to do all the work of integrating it into the system, and the system won't realize it's there. If it ever feels the need for an ftp server program, it's going to look at the RPM database and say "nope, no ftp servers here".
If this box is going to be on the Internet, bite the bullet and switch to vsftpd (or some other secure ftp server). Security was the biggest problem with ws-ftpd.
