Allowing anonymous FTPThis 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!
