FTP, File Transfer Protocol is used to transfer files between computers.

Here is a list of some of the most widely used open source FTP servers available on Linux:

  • vsftp
  • Filezilla
  • Pure-ftpd
  • NASLite
  • wu-ftpd
  • etc.

Install vsftp

Probably the most secure and fastest FTP server for a UNIX-like system.

Install it :
sudo apt-get install vsftpd

install-vsftp

Put your files here to make them available to FTP clients

Connect to the FTP server

Secure FTP

Edit /etc/vsftpd.conf:

ftp-server

after press enter key, we get these result

Now vsftpd will ask for the user’s password and will start at their home directories.
