hi t3___, first, i'd suggest not posting the same ? in different forums. it makes life hard for anyone trying to answer you.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php

second, you could start reading here.

thanks tough guy... I moved the content here after it was ignored for several hours, and at second glance didn't seem to be a true newby question.

thanks also for the helpful link to the vsftpd site - since I have the server installed/up and running/partially configured and functioning I clearly have visited the man pages, online docs, and searched many many forums before posting here for help. as is true of many online docs, the vsftpd documentation assumes that you have a firm understanding of linux in general... file/dir permissions are a weak point of mine and Im here for help.

perhaps you can take a moment to answer the three clear questions I asked and help a guy out....

for that i have to say thank you for assuming i'm a tough guy, it's a compliment really. also i believe it is the job of moderators here to move content to more pertinent forums if need be.

since your post stated nothing of this nature...

i had to assume that you'd be grateful for a link to any information. again my appologies for the misunderstanding, you obviously have a good grasp on this situation and clearly do not need my humble help.

also, in reference to fighting

it was not my intention to fight/argue w/ anyone. as i stated previously i am here to learn and help. while i understand your anger at having problems w/ your system, i do not understand the hostility of your responses. i was in earnest trying to give some good information to get you on your way, and, recieved hostile responses for my help. i am in no way trying to fight/argue/flame anyone. i am here because i'd like to learn and help others learn. i've not begun to become sarcastic as seems you thought i were.

with that said, if you do some honest searching, and reading, i believe you'll find the answer your looking for.

in sincerity, good luck.

hey guys. i have a problem.

i can't seem to get vsftp to work.

in the config i set anon_enable=no, local_enable=yes.

the linux box is running fedora core 4. i don't know what version vsftpd came with it.

when i use a ftp client to login into the machine. it doesn't seem todo anything.

Q) Help! Local users cannot log in.
A) There are various possible problems.
A1) By default, vsftpd disables any logins other than anonymous logins. Put
local_enable=YES in your /etc/vsftpd.conf to allow local users to log in.
A2) vsftpd tries to link with PAM. (Run "ldd vsftpd" and look for libpam to
find out whether this has happened or not). If vsftpd links with PAM, then
you will need to have a PAM file installed for the vsftpd service. There is
a sample one for RedHat systems included in the "RedHat" directory - put it
under /etc/pam.d
A3) If vsftpd didn't link with PAM, then there are various possible issues. Is
the user's shell in /etc/shells? If you have shadowed passwords, does your
system have a "shadow.h" file in the include path?
A4) If you are not using PAM, then vsftpd will do its own check for a valid
user shell in /etc/shells. You may need to disable this if you use an invalid
shell to disable logins other than FTP logins. Put check_shell=NO in your
/etc/vsftpd.conf.


in this section of the faq. (A1)i looked and changed the conf. no change.

(A2)where do i run "ldd vsftpd" i'm confused cause it says that the command isn't found. also there is a pam.d folder in the etc folder.

(A3) "/etc/shells"?? what am i looking for? a file or folder. how do i check for shawdow passwords? should they be on or off?

(A4) i put the check_shell=no in the conf but still no change.

please help me!
