    Google is giving me a lot of good ideas when I search with the following
    terms:

    suse pure-ftp start

    As root try rcpure-ftpd start.

    Good luck.

    Though I have openSUSE 10.3 and not SLED may be this helps:

    I run pure-ftp through xinetd. may be first have a look in /etc/xinetd.d/pure-ftp.
    YaST > Network Services > Network Services (xinetd).
    Then look for the ftp service in the list. It will point to /usr/bin/pure-ftp. You can change it (e.g. adding/removing options, see) and switch it on/off.

    When it is not there you can add it. I have:
    Code:
       On   ftp   stream   tcp   no    root   /usr/bin/pure-ftp   -4 -E
    and I added some security afterwards in /etc/xinetd.d/pure-ftp (the only-from clause, but you most probably want more allowance then only from localhost):
    Code:
    service ftp
    {
            socket_type     = stream
            protocol        = tcp
            wait            = no
            user            = root
            server          = /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd
            server_args     = -4 -E
            only_from       = localhost
            disable         = no
    }

    I also do not have SLES, but in openSUSE in YaST Network Services there is an FTP Server module which will automatically set up and start either pure-FTP or vsftp. If you don't have that, look in the Novell SLES documentation; there are instructions there for running pure-FTP.
