Hi,

I have Mandrake 7.0 Installed. Its working great. I have internet sharing ative on it and SAMBA server is running too. All that works great.

What I need now is how to setup an FTP server??

I know that Mandrake 7 comes with wu-ftpd, but I've heard that it has some security problems. I have heard that pro ftpd is better.

Can someone give me a few steps and examples on how to install it and setup a basic configuration.

I've visited the HOW-TO web site and it doesn't have much.

oh, and I have a cable internet connection with two nic in my linux machine. The first is the internet modem and the second goes to my hub which connects to my private Win98/2000 netwokred machines.

goto http://rufus.w3.org/linux/RPM/proftpd.html , pick your desired version, and download the appropriate rpm. after that, just read the docs that it installs (in /usr/doc/proftpd or some such most likely) and follow thier instructions.
