How to set-up a FTP server

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a network protocol used to transfer data from one computer to another through a network such as the Internet.

Type in a terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install vsftpd

A folder /home/ftp is created. All files placed there can be viewed and downloaded from our ftp user (by default, usr: Anonymous pwd: -no password-).

$ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd start

You can browser the content of your ftp folder at ftp://localhost or ftp://YourLocalIpAddress (how to find your local ip adress)

Start, stop, restart FTP services

$ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd start
$ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd stop
$ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart
