I need your help please. I use RHEL ver.6 and have trouble setting up VSFTP using SSL. I managed to install the package perl-Net-FTPSSL-0.15-1.el6.noarch & also added entries in vsftpd.conf by following this site http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/config...a-ssl-tls.html
[root@localhost2 ~]# ftp-ssl localhost
bash: ftp-ssl: command not found
lftp, TLSWRAP commands wont work. (not sure if its relevant here)
Thanks for your reply Shaji. ftp-ssl package is available for debian based systems but i'm not sure if its available for Redhat or centOS distros.
I was trying to find a way to install ftp with ssl encryption using the private key i created.
[root@localhost2 ~]# yum install *ftp-ssl*
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.

Secure FTP with SSL on CentOS
by MIKE on JANUARY 29, 2009 · 2 COMMENTS
in FTP SERVER
FTP communication is not secure, all communication is plain text and can be easily captured. Despite this serious weakness, few do anything to secure it. There are simple ways to correct this with VSFTPD.
SSL/TLS With FTP
FTPS is also known as FTPS Secure or FTP-SSL. What FTPS does is add the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to the normal FTP on the same port 21. It is easy to confude FTPS on port 21 with SFTP which is actually SSH on port 22.
edited just to add that FTP-SSL is the same as ftps from what this link states.
Hello everyone! Thank you so much for all your response on this matter. my apologies for the late reply as i was in travel (in a place where i couldn't access internet).
lleb & chrism01 - I tried the site you suggested. (http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/config...a-ssl-tls.html). I was able to follow till the part where it asks to add some entries in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf and then it gives instructions for Debian based distros. adding these entries didn't help.
DJ Shaji - I tried downloading the source code (netkit-ftp-0.17+ssl-0.2.diff.gz). I'm unable to compile it using the 'make' command. appreciate if you could guide me with this if i'm not doing it correctly.
