Easy to Install FTP Server


Good Day All,


Is there a Linux FTP server that is easy and quick to install? I would also want to set how large an upload users can upload.

I would also love web access.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Brian

can you be a bit more specific.
your question is like asking
"is there a truck i can use "


debian based ?
red hat based ?
bsd based ?

as to large files ? whatdo you want ? I move around 16+ gig single images ( imaging data sets ) all the time
or do you want to move around 1+ terabit files

most if not all mainstream distros have a ftp client and server in the repos

Post Serv-U

Serv-U (www.Serv-U.com) has a Linux version that's tested on Fedora, Ubuntu, AMI Linux, and Mint. Plus it has a well-developed and well laid out GUI, if you prefer GUI management over terminal. It's written natively in C/C++ so it doesn't suffer from the performance losses you usually see with servers written in Java. It has a web interface that allows for transfers using HTTP/HTTPS, and in the Silver and Gold editions there's a free applet that supports multiple concurrent transfers in the browser. Finally, the Gold Edition has a remote admin console that works via the browser.

If you need a really simple anonymous FTP server, you can try busybox. This should work on any Linux platform.

Create /etc/inetd.conf with the following contents:
21 stream tcp nowait root busybox ftpd /var/ftp

or (if you want to allow uploading):
21 stream tcp nowait root busybox ftpd -w /var/ftp

Now you can run "busybox inetd" to start your anonymous FTP server at port 21 located at /var/ftp

Good luck !
