ProcedureTo Enable FTP on a Linux Based Management Server

  1. Log in to the management server as root.

  2. Create symbolic links to the /etc/init.d/vsftpd file in the /etc/rc3.d and /etc/rc5.d directories.

    For example:

    # ln -s /etc/init.d/vsftpd /etc/rc3.d/S99vsftpd
    # ln -s /etc/init.d/vsftpd /etc/rc5.d/S99vsftpd

    The FTP service is enabled, and starts when the management server is rebooted. After the system is rebooted, you can verify whether the FTP service has started by using the ps and grep commands:

    # ps -eaf | grep ftp
    root    3035    1  0  16:27 ?    00:00:00 /usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd/vsf
Next Steps

Update the /etc/hosts file as described in the next section.
