I have a question and maybe a Topic for a show. I want to share files via WLAN between my Linux-Box and my iPad. I was wondering whether I could set up an FTP-Server on my Linux and which one to take and how to configure it. Maybe that's a bad idea and there's an easier way.
If anybody knows anything about that, please let me know.
Meanwhile, I set up a VSFTPD-server. Just need to make a User and Password now. Learned that symlinks won't work with in /srv/ftp - solution: "mount --bind <source dir> /srv/ftp/<optional subdir>". The command needs root.
I'd need help with setting up a user account with password for my ftp to make it more secure. SSL is already active :))
Here is my /etc/vsftpd.conf . With it, home is usable on the pad with any ftp program after login.
# we're running standalone
# enable virtual users:
# allow writing
#local_umask=022 #uncomment when enabling writing
# some general options
# more verbose logging
