ftp missing in Redhat Entierprise Linux release 5.1 (Tikanga)


Hi,
I want to enable ftpd, but there is none in /etc/init.d/vsftpd, /etc/init.d/wuftpd...in Redhat Entierprise Linux release 5.1 (Tikanga)

also I could not find yum in this version --- to be able to install
ftp pkg if there is non-exist.

How could I have ftp or enable ftp in the Redhat 5.1 version:
Redhat Entierprise Linux release 5.1 (Tikanga)

Also I could not run : "service vsftpd start" <--- it seems the service is not existing.

Your advice is appreciated!

Thx.

vsftpd isn't installed by default but is available for RHEL5.

How are you searching for it? What does "yum list vsftpd" show?

As it's RHEL5.1 yum should work. If it's not working try to install the yum package from the DVD/CD by RPM.

And VSFTPD pkg is not installed by default in RHEL5, So you have manually install the pkg. Just make a repository from the RHEL5 DVD and install the pkga by yum.

you have to choose ftp during installation by choosing optional packages

No, you don't have to do it at install time. You just (as root) run

yum install <pkg name here>

https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-2531

when you want a new pkg after install.

Apparently folks missed that OP said he couldn't find it with yum. I asked how he was looking and he never responded.

man yum -- which through reading will bring you to: yum search ftp

You say yum is non-existant? What happens when you type "yum --help"?

"service vsftpd start" will not work if you do not have it installed. What is the output from: rpm -qa | grep vsftpd

I should think it was clear the OP abandoned this post some time back. He never bothered to answer the first reply.
