Ubuntu Linux vsftpd ftp service / server install

Posted on July 31 2009 by admin

Ubuntu Linux comes with various ftp servers to setup FTP service such as: => proftpd - Versatile, virtual-hosting FTP daemon => vsftpd - The Very Secure FTP Daemon => ftpd - FTP server => wu-ftpd - powerful and widely used FTP server => wzdftpd - A portable, modular, small and efficient ftp server => pure-ftpd - Pure-FTPd FTP server I recommend using vsftpd. It is simple and quite secure FTP server. According to vsftpd man page: vsftpd is the Very Secure File Transfer Protocol Daemon. The server can be launched via a super-server such as inetd or xinetd. Alternatively, vsftpd can be launched in standalone mode, in which case vsftpd itself will listen on the network. => Default ftp port : 21 => Default configuration file : /etc/vsftpd.conf How do I set up the vsftpd daemon to accept connections from another computer? The configuration of the vsftpd FTP service (read as daemon ) simply requires three steps. Step # 1: Install vsftpd Type apt-get command to install vsftpd $ sudo apt-get install vsftpd Output: Password: Reading package lists… Done Building dependency tree Reading state information… Done The following NEW packages will be installed: vsftpd 0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Need to get 121kB of archives. After unpacking 438kB of additional disk space will be used. Get:1 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com edgy/main vsftpd 2.0.4-0ubuntu5 [121kB] Fetched 121kB in 0s (246kB/s) Selecting previously deselected package vsftpd. (Reading database … 31396 files and directories currently installed.) Unpacking vsftpd (from …/vsftpd_2.0.4-0ubuntu5_amd64.deb) … Setting up vsftpd (2.0.4-0ubuntu5) … Adding system user `ftp’ with uid 106… Adding new user `ftp’ (106) with group `nogroup’. Not creating home directory `/home/ftp’. * Starting FTP server: vsftpd Step # 2: Configure /etc/vsftpd.conf The default vsftpd configuration file is /etc/vsftpd.conf. You need to edit this file using text editor such as vi: $ sudo vi /etc/vsftpd.conf Add the following line (uncomment line) to the vsftpd configuration file: local_enable=YES Above config directive will allow local users to log in via ftp If you would like to allow users to upload file, add the following to the file: write_enable=YES For security you may restrict local users to their home directories. Add the following to the file: chroot_local_user=YES Save and close the file. Step # 3: Restart vsftpd To restart vsftpd type the command : $ sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart Output: * Stopping FTP server: vsftpd [ ok ] * Starting FTP server: vsftpd [ ok ] How do I use ftp command line utility? Now you should be able to FTP to this server with any account that exists on the system except for the root user. From Windows or other Linux system use ftp client, type the command: $ ftp ftp.nixcraft.in Output: Connected to ftp.nixcraft.in. 220 (vsFTPd 2.0.4) Name (ftp.nixcraft.in:vivek): vivek 331 Please specify the password. Password: 230 Login successful. Remote system type is UNIX. Using binary mode to transfer files. ftp> pwd 257 “/” ftp> ls 200 PORT command successful.

Open FTP port using iptables (optional) Add following rules to your iptables script. Assuming that default incoming policy is drop. If protocol is TCP and destination port is 21 (ftp): iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp –dport 21 -j ACCEPT See - How do I open open ftp port 21 using iptables for more information. There are a large number of other configuration options available for vsftpd that can be used to fine tune ftp server. Read vsftpd.conf man page by typing following command: $ man vsftpd.conf Sumber : http://www.ubuntugeek.com/settingup-an-ftp-server-on-ubuntu-with-proftpd.html

    contact center

    A contact center (also referred to as a customer interaction center or e-contact center) is a central point in an enterprise from which all customer contacts are managed. The contact center typically includes one or more online call centers but may include other types of customer contact as well, including e-mail newsletters, postal mail catalogs, Web site inquiries and chats, and the collection of information from customers during in-store purchasing. A contact center is generally part of an enterprise’s overall customer relationship management (CRM).

    A contact center would typically be provided with special software that would allow contact information to be routed to appropriate people, contacts to be tracked, and data to be gathered. A contact center is considered to be an important element in multichannel marketing.

    call center

    A call center is a physical place where customer and other telephone calls are handled by an organization, usually with some amount of computer automation. Typically, a call center has the ability to handle a considerable volume of calls at the same time, to screen calls and forward them to someone qualified to handle them, and to log calls. Call centers are used by mail-order catalog organizations, telemarketing companies, computer product help desks, and any large organization that uses the telephone to sell or service products and services. Two related terms are virtual call center and contact center.
