Thread: FTP on debian server.

  1. #1
    Hi, I order a debian server from ovh.

    I followed the tutorial here on FST and through web ui, it was looking good.

    However, when it was on the FTP, I was totally lost.

    When I was on the code
    # openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /root/vsftpd.pem -out /root/vsftpd.pem
    It gives me "bash: openssl: command not found"

    And on the
    nano /etc/vsftpd.conf
    I found

    anonymous_enable=NO
    local_enable=YES
    rsa_cert_file=/root/vsftpd.pem

    These fields but not

    ssl_enable=YES
    force_local_logins_ssl=YES
    ssl_tlsv1=YES
    ssl_sslv2=YES
    ssl_sslv3=YES

    these.

    However, it said server was started when I skipped them and

    turned on the client.

    Then, I didn't know which information I should use on my ftp client(cuteftp)

    I needed "server ip (which I have", "id (I'm not sure about this. Is this ID root? My account ID(which is pirate as the tutorial's default)?," "passward(I have question on ths too. There weren't any passward setting option on the vsftpd.config nor on the tutorial, so is is passward of root account or my accournt(pirate)?," and Port(default 21?). Because usually if I use winftp or something similar, I get to choose the account name, passward, and port. But there were noting I filled out on the vsftpd.
    Personally, I have tried all of their combination, but non of them worked.

    So I couldn't access the box though cute ftp.

    I would really appreciate your help.

    Thank you, have a nice day.

    Simply installs as root the openssl package.
    Code:
    apt-get install openssl -y

    Thanks. That did the job!
    When I used proftpd, it worked fine and I was able to have ftp access.
    Now I only have to find where utorrent is saving it's data.
    Probably c_drive in wine folder. But It's bit hard to find wine folder..lol.
    Is proftpd any worse that vsftpd?

    Well, I only use proftpd, so i can't make any comparison.
    Like you may have noticed, proftpd under Debian is pretty simple to set up.
    A default install and you can log in on the FTP server with all users you created (except those you specified into /etc/ftpusers).

    If you created a user pirate, look at /home/pirate/.wine/drive_c.
    By default, entries that have a dot as a first character in their names are hidden.
    Maybe you can configure your ftp client to show you hidden files.
