Smile Running an FTP server


I'm new to Linux, and I need help configuring an FTP server. I've already got it up and running. And I need help finding the file to configure the security settings. If you could help me I would appreciate it greatly.

Hi,

Which ftp server are you running?

Here are (just) three that came to mind:

vsftpd
proftpd
pure FTPd

I do believe the first two are most common.

Hope this helps.

it is called sftp for instance)

I'm running a vsftd server.

I'm trying to make it as secure as possible.

Didnt know. Which ports is it, like ftp ?
also is there encryption for that ?
(why not sftp if there is no encryption?)

What would you think about running a script homemade for checking when someone logs in ? (is that possible with that linux box ??)

Google for miles brennan ftp
Gives a description how to setup vsftpd. It's based on Fedora, but I applied some of it to my Slackware server.

PS Site is down at the moment of writing.
