Linux + how to install vsftp if no network access


Im currently taking a Red Hat class. As a side note, Im not thrilled. I wanted to stay on the LPI track so that I could be non vendor specific... but hard to find in person classroom traning...

Anyway .. I was given a lab that shows how to setup a ftp server. Easy enough.

I went to work after the class and a colleague needed help setting up a VM and vsftp on a system that was behind a proxy / firewall. A lab environment ...

I was able to get the OS up and running because I have copies on my external drive and on DVD. The problem - I couldn't figure out was how the heck to load vsftp without network access .. or more correctly filtered network access.

Appreciate any help or even pointing me to a doc will do ..

Thanks Regards
Sum

On the system install disk you used to install the VM, there should be a folder called "pool" which contains a significant amount of software, sorted alphabetically. On RedHat I would be surprised if it's not there.

Yes. Thank you. I went back to class today and told the professor about my problem. He also said look on the installation DVD for the rpm or deb.

Two potential problems
1 if you load via iso.
2 dependancies

Thanks so much for all the help 2hile this rookie tries too make the next leap.

Not sure about RHEL7, but for 6 (& 5 ?), if you look in /etc/yum.repos.d there should be a Media repo file eg
Code:
 cat CentOS-Media.repo

# CentOS-Media.repo
#
#  This repo can be used with mounted DVD media, verify the mount point for
#  CentOS-6.  You can use this repo and yum to install items directly off the
#  DVD ISO that we release.
#
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
#  yum --enablerepo=c6-media [command]
#  
# or for ONLY the media repo, do this:
#
#  yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c6-media [command]
 
[c6-media]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Media
baseurl=file:///media/CentOS/
        file:///media/cdrom/
        file:///media/cdrecorder/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=0
Try enabling that and you should be able to yum install vsftpd (& anything else you need)

Well, those are pretty petty issues considering
  1. You can mount the ISO image in Linux (usually as simple as double-clicking)
  2. For the software on the DVD, the dependencies kind of have to be included. Just find out what they are, and install them as needed.
