Hi,

Thanks for that. It is really good tutorial. I have only one problem when I try to login:
ftp localhost

I type root as a username or my username and both are denied, so I can login.

Why?

Thanks again,
Assaf

did you follow steps 6 and 7?
re-examine that part of the tutorial.

he he he, Are you suggesting I'm long winded and should get to the point sooner?

I wanted to really cover a lot of ground with that so anyone with nearly zero linux knowledge could follow it and successfully setup and FTP server.

Did it help, or was it too long and you found something easier to follow or what?

Glad you got it working either way.

Cool

Just another small question:

How do I start it automatically when I start the Linux machine?

Thanks,
Assaf

Depends on how your system is setup. Most of the time you can place the path to the executable in rc.local which is usually located in /etc or /etc/rc.d Do a:
locate rc.local
To see if one exists on your distro.

Other options are if you are running it from inetd or xinetd then it should be starting automatically as those are the SuperServer daemons started 'normally' during bootup, and they launch child processes of your FTP server.

HTH

Cool
