Question Point me in the direction of a good active ftp "how to" guide for linux rhel5


Hi group!! I am new to Linux, and more in depth unix in general. I am starting to switch over from Microsoft, so hopefully you guys can welcome me with open arms .

That being said, I am trying to setup Active FTP (our network administrator has forced it down our throat, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, just have to make some changes...) which brought me here.

I don't want someone to flat out tell me how to do this, but I am having a hard time finding a step by step process to follow in order to enable Active FTP.

Hi, welcome to LQ!

And where does one find "Active FTP"? I've never heard of it before =)


Cheers,
Tink

Oh ok ... given your spelling (active in caps) I assumed it's a product
you're inquiring about ...


Which server are you using in RHEL?

to start the server it is something like
Code:
sudo /sbin/service ftpd start
on the client-side you would do
Code:
ftp server.com
just like you would in windows.
_________________________

have you considered using scp instead; assuming you already have an ssh server running you would do:
Code:
scp file user@server.com # or 
scp user@server.com file

man ftp
man scp

for more info
