How do I enable FTP?

There's many different FTP servers available for Linux.  The simplest method to enable FTP is via the default system daemon, controlled by xinetd.


# yum install -y xinetd

# vi /etc/xinetd.d/gssftp

Comment out the line that says 'disable = yes'. Check the server flags, and remove '-a'.

# service xinetd start


That's all that's required to enable a basic FTP server.  You can make accounts via 'adduser' and 'passwd', and all of your regular Linux users can now use FTP.
