VL-standard: FTP-server where to get/find?
« on: May 22, 2007, 10:14:34 am »

Hi,

I'm new to VL, but not to linux. I found VL in my search for a distro that still can run on my trusty old laptop. So far so good, it runs everything I need and installed better than any other lightweight distros.
Now I'm just a tad stuck... I need an ftpserver (ftpd) like vsftp or something, so I can up/download stuff directly from this machine without worrying about the speed.
Gslapt didn't seem to have one in the list, so I was wondering if and where I can find a repository to add or perhaps install an ftp server directly.
I guess there must be one around for VL, but the question is where...

Thanks,
Roy

You can use Slackware non-system packages for VL, so you will find a Slackware package for vsftp at http://www.linuxpackages.net

You can grab XAMPP from the repo too, I cant remember wich ftp server is packaged with it, but if you want just the ftp then just go with linuxpackages.net, I install packages from slacky.it also, they work nice on vl.

Due to capset issues I decided to go with ProFTPd, which is now running and does the job wonderfull. Thanks for pointing out LinuxPackages!

Another solution is to use putty,filezilla or winscp to transfer
files from non Linux machines.
