Graphic User Interface for VSFTPD


Greetings,

I'm using CentOS 6.5 and I would like to know if there is a graphical user interface to the VSFTPD program.

If so how do I configure the program to us it as a desk top ICON.

I'm a newbie. Thanks

Filezillas a popular client, it's cross platform and can be configured to access a vsftp server, but it doesn't configure the vsftp service. That's normally done via editing the config file (in /etc/vsftpd.conf) and restarting the service.
The desktop icon is dependent on your Window Manager/Desktop Environment but generally that's not a problem. What kind of desktop environment do you want to install it in?

I *THINK* you're asking about an FTP client, rather than how to configure vsftpd via a GUI, correct??? dijetlo already mentioned filezilla, which is popular, and also said this will depend on what desktop environment you're using. You don't say, but there is bareftp and gftp, along with others. You can also easily use Konqueror and Dolphin as FTP clients.

Yep, still a newbie if you only work with the linux system once every 6 months. Full time IBM/Z Large Systems Programming. (LOL) but thanks anyway for all help is appreciated at this point.

a client is a client is a client.
a server is a server is a server.

When I have to "verify" my clients can connect to their servers, I use Filezilla to do so,
then I force them to use sftp, or scp, or any other protocol besides the insecure ftp and shut down port 21.

If you wish to administer your VSFTPD installation graphically, IDK. I'm a c-line kind of guy.
I suppose webmin may have such a functionality in it.

Just sayin'
