Unable to install vsftpd 2.0.1 on woody


I wish to install the latest version of vsftpd on woody. I can see in the pool directory the latest version of vsftpd is 2.0.1. When I execute `apt-cache showsrc vsftpd` it shows me version 1.0.0-2.

I downloaded the package then tried to installed it with dpkg. A lot a dependencies showed up and it failed saying "Errors were encountered while processing: vsftpd".

Is it possible to install vsftpd 2.0.1 on woody? If yes what is the procedure to do so.

I am not new to Linux but new to Debian.

I didn't see it on the backports page so you would need to upgrade to Sarge which has 2.0.1-1. The only way on Woody is if you can search and find one specifically packaged for it.
