Enable ftp port

Hi Experts,

Need your help in enabling the ftp port in HP-UX box.

Is there any command/config file that needs to be changed?

Also is it possible to open it only for few selected IPs only?

I think on hpu-ux there is ipfilter:

Currently I dont have access to hpux, but here example commands

Very first thing: Is it commented out in /etc/inetd.conf ? (Here uncommented...)
#       ARPA/Berkeley services
ftp          stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd      ftpd -l
telnet       stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/telnetd  telnetd

Hi Vbe

Thanks for the reply

No it is not not commented as shown in below code.

$ more /etc/inetd.conf |grep ftp
ftp          stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd      ftpd -l -a -u 002
# Before uncommenting the "tftp" entry below, please make sure
# that you have a "tftp" user in /etc/passwd. If you don't
# have one, please consult the tftpd(1M) manual entry for

# 5  
You have the -a switch set in ftpd which enables the ftpaccess file. See man 4 ftpaccess .

What is your actual problem? What computer Operating System are you trying to run the ftp client on? What have you tried, and what happens?
# 6  
Do you have a /var/adm/inetd.sec file? I no, now worries if yes, what is the content?
# 7  
Hi Vbe,

No,/var/adm/inetd.sec is not installed.

Hi Methyl,

My actual problem is I want to enable ftp in one of HP-UX box.
I wanted to know the steps required for the same, i.e if I need to change any config file to enable ftp service or open the port to which ftp listens.

Moreover in future we want to restrict the ftp acces to few IPs only.

Thanks to both of u for reply.
