ftp on Toshiba Laptop


Hello, I have installed Redhat 7.0 on a laptop, everything appears to work normally, however I cannot seem to get the ftp service to start. I want to use ftp to transfer a firewall script so that ip masq can be implemented on the laptop.

Also I would like to make my server visible to the net using vpn any ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Ummm...are you trying to run an ftp server or are you trying to ftp into another server?

Look into something called CIPE for an easy vpn.

I'm more confused now then before. Please proofread your replys before you post them. What you said above does not make any sense.

Sorry I could be a little clearer, you know when you can set up a service to start automatically such as dhcp, lpd etc in the "Control Service Activity" menu. When I set ftp or tftp to start automatically it does not when i try to start it, it will not start.

Okay. If you were using vsftpd as your ftp server you would do:

/etc/init.d/vsftpd start

to start it. If you want vsftpd to start automatically when you boot you would do:

chkconfig --levels 35 vsftpd on

If your using something other then vsftpd then you would substitute accordingly.

after checking the /etc/rc.d/init.d/ directory there is no script in the location. i see a script for dhcpd, ipchains, irda, httpd and other services avialable to start up on boot automatically, but not ftp, wu-ftp and i know i installed these daemons
