Question FTP Setup on Ubuntu Server 9.04


Hey all,
I am a newbie to linux, and am trying to set up an FTP server with 3 access levels (upload only, download only, and both). I would like to be able to access it from outside my home as well. I have no idea how to do this! I have installed vsftpd using terminal (sudo apt-get install vsftpd) and have started running it (sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd start) but don't know where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Jeff

This is a good guide: http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...l5_ch-ftp.html
Note that one major decision is whether to allow anonymous connections (not recommended but it may suit you).
You'll want separate dirs on the server for each of the upload/download/both options.

You need to edit the vsftpd.conf file. A quick overview is here: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/ubuntu-...ervice-server/ to get further help google something like: ubuntu configure vsftp
