Could someone maybe help me to set up an FTP server using vsftpd please?
Using YaST Control Center under Network Services, I installed the FTP Server along with vsfpd.
I’ve been at this for a while now, reading various ideas on what the config file should look like, but nothing works. I uninstalled vsftpd and started over fresh as quite a few changes had been made. I made a back up of the new config file. Below is a copy of the config file as it currently is . . .
When I try to connect via Filezilla client, this error is displayed -
Status: Connecting to 192.168.1.110:21…
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message…
Status: Plain FTP is insecure. Please switch to FTP over TLS.

I’m not transferring files to WAN or internet. I’m behind a router supplied by an ISP and it’s firewall is active.
I just want to transfer files between 2 PCs at home - one upstairs and one downstairs. As such, setting up SSL and certificates isn’t needed and I’m the only user.
