FTP related query


Hi team,
this is my first post in this site.

I have RH-5 installed in one of my lab boxes. I installed vsftpd on it and the /var/ftp directory is the ftp users directory. I have configured vsftpd.conf to have anonymous logins.

When i type ftp.<ip> in browser, i have a ftp page opened, which lists the directories in /var/ftp, I can download files from here. I tried to use CLI for upload and download of files as anonymous user and it works just fine. I wanted to ask if I can upload files from the web page. Because when i open the ftp page on browser it doesnt give me any upload option. The only way out is to use CLI.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks,
- Himanshu B

this is totally down to your browser. there appear to be plugins like FireFTP for firefox, but you should just use a normal ftp client really.

No, it wouldn't make sense for there to be one. FTP is a generic protocol, the interaction between doing this on a psuedo web page and a more conventional looking client would be exactly the same to the server.
