45 second anonymous ftp server setup

Setup of ftp server on debian/ubuntu… First install it.

sudo apt-get install vsftpd 

Next edit /etc/vsftpd.conf. There are tonnes of options, but this is pretty much the bare minimum.


Now provide access to directory “Music” in your home area. vsftpd sandboxes the anonymous user with chroot so symlinks won’t work, instead, we’ll use mount –bind.

sudo mkdir -p /var/ftp/music
sudo mount --bind /home/adam/Music /var/ftp/music

Restart to apply the changes.

sudo service vsftpd restart
