vsFtp on port other than port 21?


I have vsFtp up and running on my Redhat 8.0 system. My broadband connection blocks port 21, and even though I can use my router to convert some other port to 21 for the local system, some apps don't seem to work too well with it. Is there a way to run vsFtp on a port other than port 21? I can't find the documentation for vsFtp that lists the various configuration parameters or I would have rtfm

Thanks for any help in advance.

You will need to figure out which port you want to run it on. Then you either need to look up the name assigned to that port in /etc/services or add a line with a name to /etc/services. Then edit /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd and change "service ftp" to "service nameofportyoupicked". Then restart xinetd with service xinetd restart.
