Re: [suse-security] maybe off topic, ports ftp







Their should be a default free email client installed/avaliable on your
SUSE installation CD's or you can find an RPM on the Internet - something
like Kftp - that will act like WIndows Explorer. If I remeber correctley
this will allow for drag and drop file copies or at least far simpler than
using the command line.

For the ftp port - you should be able to specify a different port in the
config (probably located in or under the /etc directory)  file. May be
worth checking and adding the custom port (try anything over 6000 for
safety) in the services file in the /etc directory.

I am not a Linux boffin so check the list for anyone who has better insight
or advise as I may not be 100% spot on. I am primarily a Red Hat 9.0 user
who is busy migrating to / additional using / also using SUSE.

Good luck..

as for the apache server one can use port 8080 instead of 80.
Is something likewise possible for ftp (pureftp in my case) to use
something else as 20&21 say 8020&8021 or so.

I would like to ftp to my server but it shouldn't be to obvious.

Another question I struggle with how to configure ftp & apache in such a
way that I can drag and drop files by means a browser on a remote box to
upload files to the server after a login.

with regards,
piet
