Ftp


I am trying trying to ftp to a VMWARE (customised linux) box, but I always get connection refused. I have a feeling it may be box ftp is not enabled.

I can only work from a shell (no GUI). Where can I check if ftp is enabled, if its not enabled how do I enable it?

it all depends on what ftp server you are running, try running (as root)

service vsftpd status

this will tell you the status of the vsftpd service (standard ftp server installed in redhat)

to turn it on

service vsftpd start

or go into a runlevel editor (Services program in redhat, yast in suse, etc) and look for vsftpd, proftpd, etc...

the installed ftp server will vary from distro to distro. Have you made a config file for the ftp program? Even if it is active already, it will likely not be configured for anonymous access out of the box...

hey t3___, he has no GUI, therefore he cant open up that editor, but the command for it is

chkconfig vsftpd on

Another question from a newbie ...

Thanks folks as I was having the same problerm FTPing until I started vsftpd. Funny how things won't work when they are not running. Now that I have it running, how do I add it to the start routine going forward?

Also, this is a new install of Redhat 9 (done by someone else). Apache is display index.html from /www instead of from /var/www/html as it is configured (in the Apache Config and in conf file). Thoughts?
