I'm having a bit of problem with my installation of VSFTPD. For starters, when shutting down the computer, I get an error whenever the vsftpd process is being killed.

Here;s my setup:
Basic RedHat 9.0 install

http server setup on it, working fine

Attempt at samba server, failed. Not sure what's wrong, but I'll troubleshoot after I get FTP working.

Attempt at email server, failed. Will figure out later.

Haven't upgraded squat.

I'd love to get telnet working on it also.

Here's the errors I get during shutdown:

First it gives me an error when it initially shuts down VSFTPD. Then it gives me 2 more errors during the killall phase.

xinetd starts up fine.

Didn't see any problems during startup.

I'm not sure where to go from here. I'm at the point where I want to reinstall vsftpd. Anyone know how to unistall and then install packages in redhat?

How did you install it? If it was installed by a .rpm file, then the command to remove it (as root) is:
rpm -e nameofrpmthatinstalledit.rpm
Few other points that bear mentioning -

You need to give error output, exactly. we can help with all of the problems, but without knowing what is going on we're just taking shots in the dark.

Telnet sucks. It sends passwords in plain text. It was taken out for a very good reason. Use ssh instead. It does the same thing as telnet, a CLI interface, but it encrypts traffic. There are tons of clients to connect with ssh from Windoze to anything else. I liked a client called putty when I last ran windoze.

Red Hat 9 is ancient, it is well past its support lifetime. It can still work, but I think you'll probably be happier and find it easier to use a more current version. Red Hat turned into Fedora, and Fedora 3 is the latest from them, but 4 is coming out within a few weeks iirc.

Good new, I got the telnet working. Woohoo! When I ftp from a windows machine, it returns an unknown error number. I don't have the Kerberos FTP client running.

Thanx for the advice. I'm using PuTTY now. The VSFTPD came installed with Redhat. I wish it came in a rpm. I can't even find an RPM for this package.

Where's the error log files so I can give you specific error messages.
