Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've installed vsftp as ftp server on CentOS5. vsftpd.conf is unedited, works without change as it was installed (it's a private network on which I'm using anonymous ftp.)
For some reason vsftp will not serve some files which I downloaded from another system (using ftp.) The downloaded files simply don't show up at all if I come into vsftp via a browser, for example, and 'get' fails in a command-line ftp client. Other files originating from the local machine are served OK.
If I copy the downloaded file, vsftp shows the copy just fine but not the original; both files are in /var/ftp (the ftp server root.)
The downloaded file had group and owner as '65534' so I did chgrp/chown root, but that made no difference. Reboot makes no difference; restarting the client or using a different client machine makes no difference.
What am I missing or doing wrong? What doesn't vsftpd like about the downloaded files? This is happening on two separate machines, and I'm very puzzled.
