I am very much a NooB when it comes to linux, i have only just got a box up and running recently, with lots of help LOL.
I am using Suse8 btw.
I am trying to get vsFTP up and running on my system, however, i dont seem to be getting very far. I "think" it is installed as i can try and run it, but it says, this has to be called from inetd. Okay i think i add it into that.
Like this? Dunno if this is right for a start
case "$1" in
echo -n "Starting inetd"
## Start daemon with startproc(8). If this fails
## the echo return value is set appropriate.
# startproc should return 0, even if service is
# already running to match LSB spec.
# Remember status and be verbose
I then read that i need to restart it. I can do this either by rebooting the machine or finding the PID of inetd and calling
kill -1 PID... However, when i do a ps -x there is no process of inetd.. Have i broken it already? LOL So i resort to rebooting the machine.
Yet this still isn't working and i cant get any FTP access to the machine..
If anyone knows what i may have done wrong then i would be very grateful of some help
