Thread: Setting up vsftpd?

    Default Setting up vsftpd?


    Hi, I want to share some files on the LAN with a windows user, so I
    thought ftp would be easiest.

    I downloaded vsftpd and system-config-vsftpd, so that I could set it up
    in an UI.

    But how do I start it?

    That is commandline, I really wanted to go graphical...

    I get into trouble with the guide there when I have to edit
    vsftpd.conf, I can't get the rights to edit it.

    /etc/vsftpd.conf

    How do I open it? I tried via terminal.


    Code:
    --------------------
    linux-vu9d:/home/lasse # kdesu kwrite /etc/vsftpd.conf
    kdesu: cannot connect to X server
    --------------------

    Went over to proftpd as I have used that before, however, I get the same
    message there when I try to edit a file.

    I know this may be a dumb question but can we confirm that X up and
    running on the machine?

    The reason I ask is that I've run into this type of message before but
    usually only when either I'm at run level 3 (i.e., no X running) or when
    I'm ssh'ed into another machine and forgot to pass the -X flag to ssh
    when I connected. The -X tells ssh to forward X connections to my
    local machine.
