Relevant configuration files:
- /etc/inetd.conf: network configuration. Should include a line specifying wu-ftpd as the handler for ftp connections (e.g. the last line in this sample inetd.conf; "-a" added on recommendation of FAQ):
woozle@rizzo:~$ sudo cat /etc/inetd.conf #<off># netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/smbd swat stream tcp nowait.400 root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/swat ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/sbin/wu-ftpd -l -a
- /etc/ftpusers: list of system users not allowed to connect via ftp (typically "root" and other admin accounts)
- ftpaccess: main configuration file. Haven't found where this file lives yet; maybe it has to be created from scratch?
- Absolutely could not get wu-ftpd to work; this is what always happens, regardless of where I'm trying to connect from:
woozle@rizzo:~$ ftp localhost ftp: connect: Connection refused
- Giving up and trying ProFTPD
