I had a task and that was to establish ftp server on a server ran on Debian Lenny OS. I just want to share my experience, maybe one of you meet the same task, so you don’t need to worry anymore. Ok, this is what I did :
- Install vsftpd package by running
apt-get install vsftpd, if you’re not the root run it like this
sudo apt-get install vsftpd.
- Make a new account, let’s say ‘ftp-user’. Run this command to create a new user
adduser ftp-user. (again, if you’re not root user you have to put sudo in front of the command). Continue reading “Setting Up FTP Server on Debian”
If you want to make your ftp open for public access, then you’ve done it! Just connect the server via ftp tools, fill in your host name, then fill the username field with ‘anonymous’ or ‘ftp’ and leave the password field blank, then connect. But, if you want to restrict the access with a certain account then continue the instruction.
