SUSE 10.0, configuring a FTP server

Recommended Posts



I was wondering if someone could give me pointers on how to configure a basic ftp server on Suse 10.0. I want to be able to connect from computers outside of my local area network.


What I've tried so far:


1. enabling vsftpd in the xinetd interface from Yast2: should I change any of the default options?

2. Enabling ports 20 and 21 in the Firewall configuration through Yast


I can connect to the ftp server but I can't do an ls in a directory.


Do I need to change any other options?


Is there an easier way using Yast to set up an FTP server?


I appreciate any insights.
