Testing the Status of VSFTPD

You can always test whether the VSFTPD process is running by using the netstat -a command, which lists all the TCP and UDP ports on which the server is listening for traffic. This example shows the expected output:

[root@bigboy root]# netstat -a | grep ftp
tcp        0        0        *:ftp         *:*        LISTEN
[root@bigboy root]#

If VSFTPD wasn’t running, there would be no output at all.
