I havejsut installed Red Hat Linux Advanced Server. I am currently trying to get an FTP session between Linux and a Windows XP machine.
Currently this is not possible, and a grep of a ps -aux does not indicate
the presence of a FTP daemon. Additionally, netstat shows that the system is not listening on port 21 which I believe is reserved for FTP.
I can get the FTP prompt on the Linux box and Telnet is working ok between the two machines. In the directory /etc/inet.d, the file vsftpd has
the following settings:
disable = no
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/bin/vsftpd
nice = 10
Could anyone suggest how to start off the FTP service ?
