ProcedureHow to Start a Standalone FTP Server in the Background

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Disable the FTP server.

    # svcadm disable network/ftp
  3. Start the standalone FTP server.

    # /usr/sbin/in.ftpd -a -S

    Add the line to an FTP server startup script. See Using Run Control Scripts in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration for information on creating a system startup script.
