FTP Servers on Linux / Solaris

The internal file server does not work on these operating systems. The following sections describe how to use their alternatives to that file server. Installation of FTP, TFTP, SFTP and SCP depends on having the server correctly configured on Linux / Solaris.

The following installation instructions describe how to do this:

Solaris 10+ FTP – Installing on Solaris v 10 and later.

Red Hat Linux FTP / TFTP-- Installing on Red Hat Linux


The banner files for external ftp servers should not contain FTP codes or words like “timeout” and “unknown host.”

Refer to the operating system documentation for details about these, or if your operating system is not specifically mentioned below.
