Enabling FTP on RH 7.1
Hey I have php mysql and apache configured for my RH 7.1 but I don't know how to get ftp configured. I read online to enable it in one of the files in /etc/xinetd.d but the only two files I have are linuxconf-web and linuxconf-web.save. It said that there should be a file for ftp but I don' t see one. If anyone has this file could they paste the code up here and let me know how to enable it?
I will greatly appreciate all help,

Have you installed wu-ftpd?
rpm -qa | grep wu-ftp
if you don't have any response, install it now!

ftp on redhat
install the wu-ftpd rpm. edit the /etc/ftpaccess file and add a line for guest group "guestgroup ftpuser" and a line for a real group "realgroup wheel". start the server with the "-a" flag. this will chroot anyone logging in whose is in the goup ftpuser.
also check out http://www.chuvakin.org/ispdoc/ for a good reference.
ps. ssh.com has a sftp server included. which makes an encrypted tunnel for file transfers. they also have gui win32 client programs for download. the server has a simmilar chroot feature.
