View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setting up an anonymous FTP?

July 24th, 2009, 03:33 PM
Completely new to Ubuntu but I would like to try and use it to set up an anonymous FTP site for a small project I have at work. It would be an internal only FTP site. I have searched Google and havent come up with a good tutorial on how to do this. Does anyone happen to have a walk through on how to do this?

Details on how to set-up anonymous ftp for your Un*x machine (specific details are for Linux, but are generally applicable). The assumption is that ftp is already enabled. If not then check the following files and modify them accordingly:

I ended up figuring it out but it didnt work for some reason. We are trying to use it for our Wyse thin client configurations. When the Wyse connects to it I get an error in the log saying Operation not permitted. It doesnt give any more details then that. So I have no idea what wrong.

Guess its back to the drawing board.
