Connecting ftp Server with Anonymous User Part 5

Step-7: Connecting ftp Server with Anonymous User

            Enable upload & Download access Permission for anonymous user:


/var/ftp/pub is the ftp path for anonymous user to upload and download. If you want to provide download facilities for anonymous user, you have to keep default value (YES) for anonymous_enable (line no 12)
In this situation I m describing how to keep RHEL5 dvd file in /var/ftp/pub directory that your all clients can download & install packages via ftp server using yum.

Step-1: Copy the entire file from DVD source & keep it to /home/rhel5 directory

Step-2: Create a repository file for the DVD source in to the same directory

Step-3: Now create an ISO file for this DVD source named RHEL_5.4.iso in to /opt directory

Step-4: Now mount the ISO file in to /var/ftp/pub directory

Step-5: Now finally tell to your clients use this directory by configuring yum in every clients machine

Step-6: To download packages via ftp by using yum, you have to tell ftp full link in yum.conf file

Note: For more information see Yum configuration (also FTP section)


Generally, the anonymous user has no permission to upload file in ftp server. To provide  upload in ftp server follow the steps:

Step-1: First create a directory in to /var/ftp/pub named “upload” & provide required permission for this directory

[[email protected] ~]# mkdir /var/pub/upload

[[email protected] ~]# cd /var/pub/

[[email protected] pub]#chown root:ftp  upload

[[email protected] pub]# chmod 777 upload

Step-2: Now restart all the required services

[[email protected] ~]# service iptables stop

[[email protected] ~]# service network restart

[[email protected] ~]# service vsftpd restart

[[email protected] ~]# chkconfig vsftpd on

Step-3: From windows machine Open Internet explorer and then type, then you will see the pub directory as like below
