Quick FTP Setup

This is a quick and dirty setup guide to enabling ftp uploads for your server to take advantage of FTP file transfer speeds which are much faster than SFTP/SCP. It only applies to servers in a secured lab environment, and should never be performed on production servers or public-facing servers.

- check whether vsftpd is installed:

rpm -q vsftpd

yum install vsftpd

- configure it:

chmod 777 /var/ftp/pub

vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

change anon_upload_enable and anon_mkdir_write_enable to YES; add line with: ftp_username=nobody (so that will prompt for user in RedHat linux)

service vsftpd start

ftp login using user anonymous with blank password



Note:

you may need to disable iptables and selinux.
