Config FTP on SCO Like proftpd

i have installed and working FTP Server With SCO 5.05.

But i need solve problem related to config, like proftpd (i not have installed proftpd)

the recomendation on client site is enable port 113 related to inetd. but i need solve it on server side, like proftpd.conf:

Code:
DefaultRoot ~
IdentLookups off
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."

#And Virtual server like:

Code:
<Global>
DefaultRoot ~
IdentLookups off
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."
</Global>

Where or how can I get the scope, which has the proftpd configuration possibilities in the Unix SCO?

Not sure exactly what you are asking:
There is a version of proftpd for SCO, so you could download and install that.
If you are wanting to configure the SCO ftp server to provide similar results then you could follow the following directions.
How do I set up guest ftp on SCO OpenServer 5.0.x?

Thank jgt.
but the problem not is around the installation of FTP Server with GUEST ACC,
the problem is around some time delay on welcome message.

and the mentioned solution works with proftpd, but I don't have it installed, I have the ftp server native to SCO and I can't find a .conf file to put the solution; then how is such configuration done in the native FTP of SCO.

i only find some FTPXXXXXX.@ Files

Did you correctly (with wait) configure the ftpd in /etc/inetd.conf ?

# If running tftpd in secure mode, use bootpd with "-c securedir"
# where securedir is the argument to tftpd -s.
#
# To run bootpd by itself, use:
#bootps dgram   udp     wait    root    /etc/bootpd     bootpd
#
# To run dhcpd by itself, use:
#bootps dgram/i udp     wait    root    /etc/dhcpd      dhcpd
#
# When running dhcpd and bootpd, bootpd must be run in "slave mode" (with the
# -S option).  In this mode, bootpd listens on an alternate port.  The port
# bootps-alt is defined to be 950 in /etc/services, but it can be anything
# < 1024.  To run dhcpd and bootpd, use the following two lines:
#bootps dgram/i udp     wait    root    /etc/dhcpd      dhcpd -b bootps-alt
#bootps-alt dgram udp   wait    root    /etc/bootpd     bootpd -S
#
# To run the BOOTP/DHCP relay agent bootpgw, use:
#bootps dgram/i udp     wait    root    /etc/bootpgw    bootpgw server-name

Ok, it seems that nowait is correct (inetd fires a ftpd for each connection).
What is -a option? Does it use tcp wrappers?
Did you read the man page
Code:
man ftpd

Description:

ftpd is the Internet File Transfer Protocol server process. The
server uses the TCP protocol and listens at the port specified in
the ftp service specification; see services(SFF).

ftpd is started by the super server inetd, and therefore must
have an entry in inetd's configuration file, /etc/inetd.conf. See
inetd(ADMN) and inetd.conf(SFF).
-a
Specify that the access file, /etc/ftpaccess, must be
present. This is the default behavior.
