Can't login wu-ftpd ?? It's install on my mechine

I have install wu-ftpd-2.6.2-5.i386.rpm on my Redhat 7.3
and the content of /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd
has changed to : disable = no
and add these to ftphosts

chmod yes gues,anonymous,lost33

check to see if it is running:

ps aux | grep wu-ftp

or just

ps aux and look for it.

I have a recent install of this distro and can do "ftp localhost" and login to my username. I haven't touched the /etc/ftp* files. I only set the disable=no. You don't have a "only_from" setting in the xinet.d config?

Well do you REALLY want to run an INSECURE ftp server? If you have problems setting it up, switch from wu-ftpd as long as you can. Suggestion: vsftpd

markus is correct about bringing up the "S" word. I don't know how the ftp server is to be used. I only use ftp within my lan and a vpn tunnel. I am satisfied that both of these are secure, so it is not worth my time to upgrade to a better ftp server.

I understand that wu-ftp is also not blazingly fast, if you want to use it as an anonymous server on the 'net.
