i have finally managed to set up my own ftp server as a fairly new linux user. i am running vsftpd.
I starting by following a tutorial, and setting up anonymous access, but am having trouble uploading files to the pub directory despite the vsftpd.conf alterations i have made. the useful bits are as follows:
ok. so i created the upload/download directory as pub. and set the permissions :
chmod a+rwx pub
(i do realise the big security issues that this poses, but at the moment it is only on my small little LAN, and i just want to get this working!
Now, in theory, the anonymous user can log in, examine and modify the contents of the directory pub, and upload to that directoy, yet when i hop on my windows machine, log in as anonymous, i am unable to upload..!
I am sure this is only a simple little problem, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
obviously one confused newbie,
