FTP server

Hey,

As much as I would be considered relatively new to Linux/Unix, I feel that I am almost at the 'medium-advanced' stage, though this question sounds a little too pathetic to put in the advanced users forum Smilie

I am running RedHat 7.1 on a p133 (sad but true) and I was wondering if there is an FTP server shipped with this distribution, or will I have to download one... If so, where can I get a decent server.
It will only be single-user FTP so that I can transfer files from school, uni, etc so I don't really need a complicated, high-end server at the moment, just one that is simple enough to get the job done.

Any help willl be appreciated,

Hi,



Yes you get an ftp server with RH 7.1, I think it's the wu-ftpd server.

Another decent ftp server woth looking at is proftpd.

Thanks Andy, I couldn't for the life of me find it on the CD, hehe... Also, where can I get hold of proftpd..? Do you know of a site, or will I have to look around?

As Andy said you get an ftp server with RH 7.1. (wu-ftpd ). You can mount your RH CD and search.
ex: find /mnt/cdrom/ -name "*ftp*.rpm"

Proftp is available here http://www.proftpd.net/
