Unhappy Startup of vsftpd on suse 9


I am new to the wonderful world of Linux. The problem I am having is when I
try to start vsftpd on my linux machine I am getting the following messages:
Line6 : service: command not found
Line8 : socket_type : comand not found
Line9 : protocol : command not found
Line10 : wait'=' : not a pid or valid job spec
Line10 : wait 'no' : not a pid or valid job spec
Line11 : user : command not found
Line12 : server : command not found
Line17 : disable : command not found

Can someone tell me what file I should edit to correct these errors?

Hi and welcome to LQ,

From what you've posted I guess that you're trying to setup xinetd for vsftpd. All you have to do is to create a file named vsftpd and put it under /etc/xinetd.d. The contents of the file should be something like:
Code:
service ftp
{
        disable         = no
        socket_type             = stream
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        server          = /usr/sbin/vsftpd
        nice                    = 10
}
Then you have to restart the xinted daemon:
Code:
/etc/init.d/xinetd restart
You can take a look here for more details.

Regards
