ftp configuration and inq.

Hello everybody,

Working on setting up ftp..
i think, i successfully installed vsftpd(according to doc. from this site, its a ftp server).
tested from a different pc and it seem to be working.. it displayed the pub directory.. created a file and did another test and the file i created in the pub folder is there.. so ftp is working..

Q1.searched for a way to configure ftp server and just wondering is there a gui way to configure this if not wahts the best way for a new linux person to configure the various optoins like port and access rights and setting dir..

Q2. found on this site the following:
Rpm –qa|grep ftp
- does this mean that i have more then 1 ftp servers running?
can comeone explain the above list..

How did you install the vsftpd server. If you tried to install the rpm then it didn;t work. All that you see there are ftp clients.

If you used the rpm then I would try again.
