Chapter 13. Running Network Services > File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

13.5. File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

FTP services run courtesy of the ftpd daemon. It allows the machine's users to remotely access the filesystem, so that they can browse directory listings and transfer files to and from the machine. It obeys the filesystem permissions just as a login shell does.

13.5.1. Enabling Anonymous FTP

First, create a user named ftp, under which all anonymous FTP activity will occur. Since this account doesn't represent an actual person, you should use the account creation method described in Section 11.2.2.
