I want to put up an ftp server so that my friends can veiw and download files from the public folder. I want it so that they can log in annonomously, and make it so that the home folder is the public folder. Does anyone know how to do this?
I'm not 100% sure but I believe that you need to create a new user called ftp and then create some directories with appropriate permissions for that user (bin, etc, pub) and then anon people will have access to pub.
in a terminal window and follow the instructions at the bottom of the man page.
