Have you installed an ftp server? With default settings it should work good enough.

FTP

Thank you for the reply .

The mail server was set up by somebody else and i have to take over support on it know and i am not sure what has been set up .

How would i know if i have FTP server installed and the service is running ?

How do i install a ftp server ? Do i have to get the Redhat 7.1 cd's and install the RPM's ? There is no GUI , it is all command based .

Sorry i am still very new to all of this . As far as i can see all FTP access was blocked and no telnet either .

When i try and connect via FTP i get connection refused.

Thank you for all the help.

To check if an ftp server is running:

netstat -tl | grep ftp

If there is one installed usually the following command would start it:

/etc/init.d/ftpd start

If it isn't installed you will have to locate the rpm packages on the cd and install it:

rpm -i ftppackage.rpm

If you are running a firewall you will also have to allow ftp traffic on your firewall. I think redhat has very good documentation on how to get an ftp server setup specific for their distribution on their website.

Are you within the lan (presuming there is one) or outside?

Better yet, where do you need the FTP access? Locally or remotely

There are many ftp servers in every distro. The name of the package won't be 'ftppackage.rpm'. Examples are: protoftpd, wu-ftpd etc, every name with a version number.

Yes I know it was just a generic example. I don't have any redhat cd's so I can't see what the exact package name is. I assumed he/she would be able to figure out that they had to replace it with the appropriate name.

I know you know It's a good idea always to say that it is an example. Without this it may be confusing.
