Description roberts 1998-11-17 15:05:07 UTC
The statndard installation results in a system without a
working ftp service, most likly because no ftp daemon is
supplied, and inetd.conf points to a non-existant in.ftpd
daemon. It is necessary to install wu.ftpd and edit
inetd.conf accordingly to get ftp services working.

Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 1998-11-17 18:56:59 UTC
RedHat 5.2 includes wu-ftpd-2.4.2b18-2.i386.rpm which has
/usr/sbin/in.ftpd in it. If you want to have various servers (such as
FTP server) installed, you should not choose standard installation

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1998-11-19 02:12:59 UTC
The problem is fixed by installing the appropiate packages on the
system (in this case wu-ftpd will provide the necessary ftp server)
