I'm trying to set up vsftp on SUSE 10. I can't get Pure-FTP to install. I've edited the configuration /etc/init.d/vsftpd.conf to disallow anonymous connections and allow local users to connect. The ftp server doesn't show up in the Network Services section of YaST Control Center nor in System Services (Runlevel) and I can't connect to the server from my WinXP desktop on the internal LAN. The service is listed in the Network Service Configuration (xinetd) program and I can connect from my linux box when i do ftp 127.0.0.1. The service is active but I can't access it from another machine. What am I doing wrong?

Plus, the configuration file I edited was in /etc/init.d/vsftpd.conf -- the Network Services Configuration (xinetd) program told me the configuration was in /etc/vsftpd.conf so I checked that and my changes were there. Was the file in init.d a link to the one in /etc ? I'm still learning linux so please pardon the dumb questions.

Thanks.

Do you have a firewall in place that might be blocking connections from outside of the box itself?

I believe SuSE blocks most of the common ports by default, or more specifically only allows certain ports. Go into YAST->Security->Firewall and make sure FTP is allowed under the Allowed Services portion.

I would just use OpenSSH! It's probably already installed. I believe it was selected by default on my OpenSuse install.
