hi, I've posted a question here regarding the enabling of ftp server.. Some responses said, its as easy as just uncommenting out one of these lines in inetd.conf.
#ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/libexec/ftpd ftpd -l #ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/libexec/ftpd ftpd -l #tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/libexec/tftpd tftpd -s /tftpboot #tftp dgram udp6 wait root /usr/libexec/tftpd tftpd -s /tftpboot Question: Which of these four lines should I really uncomment out? What's the difference between an ftp and a tftp? And what's next? I know that, to be able to have a complete ftp directory, you'll have to provide the directory itself where you will place the files that you will let others to download from you... In my case I want to share my files in my home directory coz it contains files that I wanted my friends to donwload from me... I Also know that my ISP provides my with a dynamic ip address. After uncommenting that ftp line in inetd.conf, how will my friends be able to access my files now? Is there any configuration file for ftp server that will tell where the directory itself is located, the username and password my friends should provide, and my current ip address? Coz' I can't seem to find it somewhere in the handbook.. thanks a lot in advance:) -jay __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
