FTP Service


Just did a server install of Redhat 9.0.

Got Apache working and configured to for users and everything, but I can't figure out how to ftp to my box. I know how to use FTP clients, but I don't think there is a server/daemon/server running for ftp yet.

If i recall, i selected one to be installed, but what it was, where it went, or how to configure it is a mystery to me.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

The default is vsftpd. You need to check the config /etc/vsftpd.conf and make sure it looks ok. The default should be fine but you may want to tweak it for security.

Then run:
ntsysv

and make sure vsftpd is selected. Then start it using:
service vsftpd restart

I think RedHat uses wuftp. Try running:

redhat-config-services

You'll either see wuftpd or proftpd. I forget which one it is actually but look around and you'll find something that has ftp in it. Thats the service you want. The configuration files for it should be in /etc so if you are using vsftpd then you would want to edit /etc/vsftpd.conf . Then start the service:

/etc/init.d/vsftpd start

What is this? You beat me Mr. Ross! I may have to throw in the towel now.

Yeah, it was vsftp. The config file was good, but I forgot to start it in ntsysv.

Thanks for you help.
