still can't get ftp server running


I'm using WU-FTP
and I read through a bunch of man and following the
directions on this post

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...tup+ftp+server

when I restarted inetd with
killall -HUP inted, I got

inetd: no process killed

when I tried to log into the FTP I'm getting connection refused

what am I doing wrong?

thanks

Look in /etc/xinetd.d/ for a file called wu-ftpd, open that file up in your fav editor and change disable=yes to disable=no,

restart xinetd

ok I got it to work
but only the anonymous account works
what I actually wanted was to creat a guest user acct.

uid: test
usergroup: remote

so I modified the following in ftpaccess

allow-uid ftp,test
allow-gid ftp,remote
guestuser test

class all real,guest

the test user will need to have access to
/home/test
/home/test/upload (will have write access)

how do I make this work?

thanks a bunch

Do you have a user called test?
adduser test
passwd test

when this is done, user test will have thier own /home/test directory that they should be able to ftp into.

Can you tell us what you did to fix it?
So other people with the same problem can perform forum searches and find the answer also.

thx

there really wasn't much to it all I had to do
was add the user and make it was also defined
in ftpaccess
I think the misunderstanding I had was
that guest user and real user are very different
real user requires more to setup
