Unhappy vsftpd!


Hi there,

I have a RedHat 9 installation that I am able to ssh into from the web. But I am trying to host my girlfriend's website (hence the urgency of this request and her designer needs to ftp in.

I am using vsftp which comes with RH. The man page states that you have to start it from inetd. However, I did a find from root (/) and all I could find was xinetd. I am not familiar with its syntax as I am with inetd.

So my question is, do I ADD my own inetd.conf? Am I just not FINDING it for some reason? Or do I need to enable vsftpd fom xinetd.conf?

Thanks for any help you could provide!
Tim

I used to use RH9 and now I use FC1 so I may be off on this but I think that you start vsftp with it's own startup script. In FC1 it is /etc/init.d/vsftpd and the config file is /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf. But look in /etc/init.d to see if the vsftpd startup script is in there. But remember I'm not using 9 anymore, so I may be way off.

vsftp - WORKING! sortof... :)

Thank you SIR!! Your suggestions worked, and now vsftpd is up and running! However, when users login they can issue a "pwd" command. But when they attempt to list a file with ls, the server disconnects them. Any idea why this could be occuring? I'm assuming something in the config file is off, but I'm dammned if I know what that might be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Tim

my knowledge of vsftp is very limited. Type man vsftpd and see what that can tell you.

Haven't used vsftp in a while but try and get and ensure whatever ftp program they are using is set to passive mode.

i.e if doing it from a linux command line use the -p paramater

ftp -p my.ftpsite.com
