I want to set up a ftp server.


I want to set up a simple ftp server just so I can download few files from my computer on to another computer that I will be using later.

Just any program that I can run so I have a ftp server, I'm using Fedora Core 2 so if there is some program that can do that that comes with it then you could just point me at that.

Don't really know much about it, but have you tried ssh? (a friend and I used it a while ago, when I was using FC1, so he could configure my stuff right)

I havn't tryed ssh yet no, but I'm interested in doing so, but right now I just need to be able to access the files on my computer from another computer, just as simple as that, later on I would look into it more detaild what is best to use and so on so forth, right now I just want it to work so I can get the job done.

Just need a name of one program that can do this or something.

Well, ssh simply allows you to login to the host whenever you want (given that the host and client are configured correctly) as a user of that computer, this has the benefit that you can also do commands, and (like my friend did), if you have the root password, you can also install needed drivers, libraries, etc.
So I think ssh is definetly worth to try, but besides ssh, I have nothing left to contribute.
Wether you choose to use shh or some other program, I wish you best of luck.
Also, it might be usefull to check the Software forum (I know it sounds weird ).

I would guess that proftpd would be one FTP server that would come with FC2. If not already loaded you can find it on one of the install CDs. I'm not familar with the configuration GUIs but check in the services section and select it to start at boot.

For documentation:

actually I don't think proftp comes with FC2 I know it didn't with RH9 or FC1, but VSFTP does.
