Cool FTPing to an SMB share?


I have a dump space set up using samba on my nix box and wanted to know if it was possible to FTP to it from a remote location. I want to be able to remotly gain access to the file on that dump space and to be able to download them to that remote station. What do I need to have setup on my comp to allow this to happen?

What you need to accomplsh this task is an ftp server. I sure that SLACK 8! came with one and is probably running right now. But if it isn't because you stopped it, then start it up and set up access restrictions on it.

What is the FTP server called? I dont believe that I turned it off considering I have done nothing that deals with FTP anything, just samba.

In the file /etc/inetd.conf you should see the line:
Code:
# ProFTPD FTP Daemon:
ftp     stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  proftpd
If this line is uncommented then ftp sould be working. The inetd (internet daemon) will start a ftp server process to handle the incoming request. If it is commented out, uncomment it and send a sig hup to the inetd. This will tell the inetd process to reread its configuration file (inetd.conf).
Code:
ps -ef | grep inetd
kill -HUP <pid of inetd>
Ftp and Samba are unrealted. File shares setup through Samba are not needed for ftp.

samba is nothing to do with ftp, they are DIFFERENT things. never the twain and all that. if you want to ftp to somewhere you need an ftp server....

well if you have ftp access to the same directory that you're sharing on samba then yes you can do that. but they are totally independent from each other.
