Wink VSFTPD GUI Front End


I was wondering if there is a GUI front end to VSFTPD?

And if there is, how do I execute it to get started.

I'm a newbie running CentOS 6.7

Thanks.

I don't think so, and even if so, it's unclear how it would make it easier to use.

I had thought that VSFTP had a GUI like GFTP which is easier to use.

Thanks for your reply.

If you are talking about a GUI client to access an FTP server, I recommend Filezilla.
There is a version for MSWin (see the home site https://filezilla-project.org/) and for Linux clients (try your repos first).
It will also deal with SFTP servers.

Sorry, I understood you wanted a GUI for managing the server. There is no vsftp client, but as chrism01 comments, there are ftp clients with a GUI.

Well, simply being a member of this forum doesn't ensure improving your Linux knowledge. I've been here for some time myself, and I haven't learnt as much as one would expect

But over 400 posts, regarding different distros of Linux, C programming, and other topics *DOES* indicate something....and 'newbie' isn't it.

Also, after ten years, it's not unreasonable to expect one to have read the forum guidelines, and know how to ask a question.

Thanks for your reply.
vsftp is a "lightweight, efficient FTP server written for security"
GFTP is a client program.
If a client program is what you're after, filezilla.
