Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Assuming you have access to the server, if it has an FTP server installed, it should be a matter of running the corresponding script in /etc/rc.d (or /etc/init.d) and modifying it so that it runs on boot.
If the server - for sure - has an FTP client up and running, and you're still not seeing a port to connect to, then more than likely there's a firewall running - or traffic to that port is being blocked. Unfortunately, my knowledge doesn't extend as far as Linux firewalls.
If I use Safari, I only can have access by typing ftp://username:username@server-ip, in the address box, I can see and open files, but I cannot add files to the folder. I returns a message saying folder cannot be modified.
In my case, it's inetd and therefore will not reveal the actual program. In which case I'll have to check the inetd configuration to see which ftp service is running. It might however also give vsftpd or the name of another ftp daemon.
I have my ftp setup in rht enterprise version3 up and running.when i use telnet it connects.
but when i try it in windows explorer it doesn't show the login screen and gives the error message "the server name or address cannot be resolved.
kindly help me out.
