ftp command not found


I'm working in Fedora Core 5. I can open up a terminal and type ftp and get a command not found error. What is going on?

Make sure "ftp" is in your PATH environment variable.

First, check to make sure you have "slocate" packages installed (I'm not sure how to work the automated package manager for Fedora (I know it's called "yum", though).

If "slocate" is installed, as root, type in:
Code:
updatedb
then once it has finished, as a normal user type in:
Code:
locate ftp
You're probably going to get ALOT of results with this, but if you scan through the list, you should find it in there. There is always the chance that it's not installed, but I can't see that being the case with Fedora.

Should it be the case that it's not installed, try typing (as root):
Code:
yum ftp
If "ftp" IS installed, make note of where it's installed to, and add that directory to your PATH:
Code:
$ export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/ftp/executable
