Re: ftp problem


First, make sure an FTP daemon is installed :

rpm -q wu-ftpd

If you are using RedHat or Mandrake, services are started using eXtended inet daemon (xinetd). Therefore, edit /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd and change "disable = yes" to "disable = no".

After that, restart xinetd (FROM THE MAIN CONSOLE !) :

/etc/init.d/xinetd restart

Good luck
