    configuring Vsftpd service on Linux server


    i'm configuring ftp service on redhat linux server.
    For that i need to instaal vsftpd rpm file, but while installing this rpm i got following message:


    [root@localhost /]# rpm -Uvh vsftpd-1.1.3-8.i386.rpm
    error: failed dependencies:
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by vsftpd-1.1.3-8
    libwrap.so.0 is needed by vsftpd-1.1.3-8

    ------------------------------------------

    i've checked for installed glibc's:
    root@localhost /]# rpm -qa | grep glibc
    glibc-2.2.4-26
    glibc-devel-2.2.4-26
    glibc-common-2.2.4-26
    -----------------------------------------
    when i tried to install glibc 2.3.3...., again failed dependencies message comes out


    Is there any shorter and efficient method to install ftp service

    Can't you use yum? I'm not sure which distros feature it, but I think it's like Debian's apt: It automatically calculates, fetchs, and install dependencies along with the desired package.
    Flies of a particular kind, i.e. time-flies, are fond of an arrow.

    Why not install it from sources. Download vsftpd-2.0.4.tar.gz, then:
    Code:
    tar xfz vsftpd-2.0.4.tar.gz
    cd vsftpd-2.0.4
    Read the INSTALL file for istructions on how to install and configure it.
    If I remember correctly, you configure builddefs.h file first, and then install everything by typing:
    Code:
    make
    make install
    After that you will have to create some configuration files in /etc and /etc/pam.d directories.
    Just google for sample configurations.

    Hope this helps.

    Can't use Yum? Did your type SU at the CLI and enter the root password? Or you can try typing SU - at the command prompt that will put you in the root directory. If Yum doesn't work try typing cd /sbin and then try typing Yum install vsftpd.
