FTP server in Red Hat 7.3

I installed Red Hat 7.3 and now I want to set up an FTP server.
I can't find the files /etc/vsftpd.* or proftpd or wu-ftpd.
Maybe I miss to install something.
Someone could help me ?
Thanks in advance

rpm -qa | grep ftp

And see what ftp packages are installed.
wu-ftpd is the one you want...(I think)

I use wu-ftp and it works well enough.

in 7.3 I believe their is an RPM for it, or it may already be installed. One thing that might confuse use is that it runs from the xinet.d directory instead of the init.d directory.

If you not familier with xinit it is a way to run a service on command instead of all the time. In other words ftp only starts when somebody is ftping and stops when they are done saving resources. Another sweet thing about xinet.d is that you can use tcp wrappers to only allow access to certain people.
