Vsftpd


hello
I have installed vsftpd in my Centos server.I have some problems:
-how do the users can see each-other folders?
-how i can secure the server from viruses, as there will be a security issue while using ftp on explorer?
-Is there any size limitation on filezilla?

Share the folders you wanted the public to see.

Security is a broad subject. Please specify what weaknesses you wanted to harden up.

Try it out, if it serves your purpose, good.

Goodluck and enjoy.

Zahid there are plenty of sources in the web about that simple task. Try this.

Being new to linux you have to unlearn many things from M$Windows. Total dependence is one bad habit the Redmond guys wanted to develop in the users to become more and more dependent to them, this one you must overcome too. In open source trade we learn by searching and doing. Don't take this negatively, I am just sharing to you similar frustrations before which I easily overcame.

If you have questions about the source I linked above feel confident to come for explanations.

Good luck and enjoy.
