FTP Server Configuration Part 1


FTP Server Configuration on RHEL5

The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is one of the most common means of copying files between servers over the Internet. Most Web-based download sites use the built-in FTP capabilities of Web browsers, and, therefore, most server oriented operating systems usually include an FTP server application as part of the software suite. Linux is one of them.



Step-1:  Check FTP server package is installed or not

[[email protected] ~]# rpm -qa | grep –i vsftpd*  or

[[email protected] ~]#  rpm –qa vsftpd*

            If not installed, then installed the packages using Yum command:

[[email protected] ~]# Yum Install vsftpd*


Step-2: Check and Configure the Network Card:


[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

(Modified File):

#Broadcom Corporation Net link BCM57875 Gigabyte Ethernet PCI Express
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
HWADDR=00:0C:29: EB: B2: CA
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet

PEERDNS=no

USERCTL=no

IPV6INIT=no

IPADDR=210.207.201.7

NETMASK=255.255.255.0

NETWORK=210.207.201.0

BROADCAST=210.207.201.255

Step-3: Change the host name by following this command:

[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/sysconfig/network

(Modified File):

NETWORKING=yes
NETWORKING_IPV6=no
HOSTNAME=ftp

Step-4: Now Edit the hosts file for locally host name resolution by following this command:

[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/hosts

(Modified File):

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1       localhost.localdomain localhost

210.207.201.7   ftp.alphabd.net      ftp

Step-5:  Edit the resolv.conf file by following this command

[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/resolv.conf

search alphabd.net
nameserver 210.207.201.1

nameserver 210.207.201.2

After changing the above configuration you have to reload/restart the NIC(eth0) card by following command:

[[email protected] ~]# ifdown eth0

[[email protected] ~]# ifup eth0

[[email protected] ~]# service network restart
