Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

This article shows you how to install the default anonymous ftp daemon (ftpd).

I had just installed 2.2.8 on a machine which would server as an FTP server for an upcoming install-a-thon [that is an event experienced FreeBSD users help novices install FreeBSD on their machines].  I first had trouble mounting the CD-ROM.  But then I wanted to be able to access the contents of that CD-ROM via anonymous ftp from other machines.

/stand/sysinstall
Configure
Networking
Anon Ftp

I just accepted all of the default settings.

For the welcome message, I used this:

Welcome to the NZFUG FreeBSD Install-A-Thon ftp server.

And that was it.  You are now running anonymous ftp.  It's so easy!
