FTP in AIX 6.1
« on: August 17, 2011, 09:51:41 »
AIX 6.1 still has FTP in /etc/inetd.conf.  But it is set for IPv6.  To run it on IPv4, change
     ftp     stream  tcp6    nowait  root    /usr/sbin/ftpd         ftpd

     ftp     stream  tcp    nowait  root    /usr/sbin/ftpd         ftpd

Then get PID for inetd
     ps -ef | grep inetd

And restart it to enable FTP service
     kill -HUP  <inetd PID>

Other AIX systems may have startsrc command.  Use this to start FTP
     startsrc -s ftpd

Linux, lets go there now..
