How to setup my computer as a server (vsftpd?) so others can download my MultiDistro?


So others can download my MultiDistro CD/DVD?
Is it possible for others to download an iso image through my computer, or do I also need a file hosting service, etc?
I posted a similar question in Newbie section- ( http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...oad-it-713265/ )
But this forum is probably the better choice.
Thanks

Why are you using vsftp? BitTorrent is a much easier and much more efficient way to distribute large files.

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place.

I'll report this to be merged with your other one (since both have replies)
