    How to Make an FTP Sever out of SuSE 9.3 Pro

    I want to amke an ftp sever I can access anywhere in the world out of my computer. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, I just want to be able to put files on them and use them anytime I need.

    Here is what I want out of it

    2 users pasword protected.(they have full rights to do anything)
    Annyomaus access: read-only.
    and of course being able to upload files remotly.

    Hope this isn't to hard to do. If it is, I shall learn!

    I would suggest proftpd, and if you needed it gproftpd. proftpd is a very powerful FTP server and gproftpd is a frontend for it, I would suggest you check SuSE package manager as I am sure it will have it and the official website(s) for howto and more info.

    I use vsftpd on SUSE 9.3 and it does me fine. It has an fairly easy to understand config file which is easy to edit to meet you needs and it can run as stand-alone or from xinetd.
    The biggest security threat is the user.

    Use GLFTPD.

    You can even setup a 1:3 server.

    You can give credits. You can use SSL with your server, your documents will be protected by ssl encryption over ftp.

    Installation will require some time, but you get really something you like.

    I'm running GLFTPD allready for over a year. And it's the best made FTP server i ever saw.
