    vsftpd - running


    Hi,
    I just installed the latest vsftpd. When I first ran vsftpd, it would run in the background, and I could ftp in from another computer while I was working on my linux computer.

    Now, when I run /usr/local/sbin/vsftpd I get a blinking cursor and can not continue to work on my linux machine until I ctrl+C out of the vsftpd application. Does anyone know why?? or how I can run vsftpd in the background as a server and continue to work in my command line.

    ps. I only have command line capability - I don't have an X

    best,
    ~Calador

    Never mind, I found online to add
    background=YES
    into my vsftpd.conf file and now things are working great -
    background=NO is the default setting
