29.1 Starting the FTP server

In the Service Start frame of the FTP Start-Up dialog set the way the FTP server is started up. You can choose between starting the server automatically during the system boot and starting it manually. If the FTP server should be started only after FTP connection request, choose Via xinetd.

The current status of the FTP server is shown in the Switch On and Off frame of the FTP Start-Up dialog. Start the FTP server by pressing Start FTP Now. To stop the server, press Stop FTP Now. After having changed the settings of the server press Save Settings and Restart FTP Now. Your configurations will be saved by leaving the configuration module with Accept as well.

The Selected Service frame of the FTP Start-Up dialog shows which FTP server is used. Either vsftpd (Very Secure FTP Daemon) or pure-ftpd can be used. If both servers are installed, you can switch between them. The pure-ftpd package is not included in the standard openSUSE media so you have to install it from a different installation source if you want to use it.
