Normally the FTP daemon is started by inetd (or xinetd depending on release level of Linux), it does not run continuously.

If the system runs the inetd daemon there will be a file /etc/inetd.conf which would have an entry in it for the ftp daemon, if it running xinetd there will be an /etc/xinetd.conf file and an /etc/xinetd.d directory with files for each of the daemons the xinetd controls.

It rather depends on the ftp server you have installed. Some such as proftpd can be set to run as a daemon in its own right and will run full time. In this case there will be a file such as /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd which is called with the start option to start the daemon and stop to stop it.

There would then be a softlink in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d call Snnproftpd (nn is a number such as 85) which will start the daemon when runstate 3 is enetered on system IPL. If this does not exist then ytou can create it with the ln -s command.

Cheers - Gavin
