Hi,

I would strongly recommend upgrading to Fedora Core 5 as RH 9 is outdated and un-supported. Anyways you should
have a FTP server called vsfptd, to see if you have it installed type:

rpm -qa | grep vsftpd

If vsftpd is installed you can edit the /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file and make alterations there, the vsftpd.conf file is very well
commented so it should be prettey straight forward. If however you are stuck you can type:

man vsftpd.conf

This will give you all the options available to vsftpd server. Once your happy with the vsftpd configuration file you can type
as root:

/sbin/service vsftpd start

This will start your vsftpd server.

xDamox,

I assume I run that command from a Terminal (soory to be so ignorant)? I did from /Root and received a reply showing the vsftp and version. What is the grep command for?

Thanks!

Hi,

Yea you do it all from terminal. The grep is a utility for patten matching if you type:

man grep

You can see what grep can do for you.
