Ensure that TCP, IP and DNS is correctly set on the server.
Verify that TCP/IP is properly set:
Verify DNS to ensure that is is properly set:
vi /etc/resolv.conf is correctly set
apt-get install proftpd
Choose “from inetd” and hit OK
Make sure DefaultRoot is not commented and has value of ~/
service proftpd restart
Add a new user and change the password for the user.
Make a new directory called /home/www/www.dalaris.com
Randomly generate five files inside /home/www/www.dalaris.com
Give ownership for www.dalaris.com to ftpuser using the command:
chown ftpuser:ftpuser –R www.dalaris.com
Edit /etc/passwd to ensure it has the appropriate directory for ftpuser.
From another workstation (I use a Windows computer in this case), try to access the FTP site. In the command prompt, access the FTP server by typing the command:
ftp 192.168.1.5 (this is the IP address of the server)
Now supply a user name and a password to login. Use ls to see the five files listed.
To download file1 from the FTP server to the local PC, type: mget file1
To upload file6 from the local computer to the FTP server, type: mput file6
to list all files again, type ls
