The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is one of the most common means of copying files between servers over the Internet. Most Web-based download sites use the built-in FTP capabilities of Web browsers, and, therefore, most server-oriented operating systems usually include an FTP server application as part of the software suite. Linux is no exception.

This chapter will show you how to convert your Linux box into an FTP server using the default Very Secure FTP Daemon (VSFTPD) package included in Fedora.
