Thread: FTP Server missing from YaST

  1. #1

    Default FTP Server missing from YaST

    I've done multiple SUSE installs over the years (versions 9, 10 and 11) and unfortunately I seem to be plagued by slight inconsistencies from one install to another which leaves me with some basic service, which I used to be able to configure and use without problems, missing.

    My new server (SUSE 11.1 64 bit) is running nicely but I just set up the webserver and now I want to use FTP to update my webpages. Only I go to configure VSFTP like I have on my previous system but YaST is missing the icon for "FTP Server" under "Network Services". How do I get that icon so that I can easily configure FTP on this machine?

    I think what I need to know is how to add a "module" to YaST.

    Just install "yast2-ftp-server" from /oss repo.

    ***
    yast2-ftp-server - YaST2 - FTP configuration
    This package contains the YaST2 component for FTP configuration. It can
    to configure two daemons: pure-ftpd and vsftpd.

    Install yast2-ftp-server via YaST and then restart YaST.

    YaST is unique. Not really just Another Setup Tool

    AFAIK no other distro has it. You can do basically everything with it.

    YaST is a major reason I prefer SUSE over other Linux distributions.
