Difference among lftp vsftpd ftp
I am new to linux and trying to learn RedHat, while configuring FTP I used a command
#rpm -qa|grep ftp
and in response i got three answers
lftp - x.x.x.xxx
vsftpd - x.x.x.xxx
ftp - x.xx.x.xx
my question is what are the differences among these three?
Thanks in advance

They are three different software packages that provide an FTP server for your machine. Like comparing MS Office with OpenOffice with LibreOffice: all basically the same idea but with different ways of going about it.
