I am trying to setup a ftp server I have downloaded and installed vsftpd 2.0.2 for some reason when I tried to run /usr/local/sbin/vsftpd & it yielded the below error message:
[root@magichands vsftpd-2.0.2]# 500 OOPS: vsftpd: not configured for standalone, must be started from inetd
1.) What's the difference between having to run in as a stonealone as oppose to from inetd?
2.) How do I configure it for both standalone AND with inetd?
3.) Which configuration is better standalone or inetd?
Thanks very much for your time,
