using vsftpd

Post by edwardsmarkf » 2020/05/23 17:04:55

hello -

i have installed vsftpd successfully by following this link: ... -centos-7/

my question: when i issue the command:

Code: Select all

systemctl stop vsftpd.service;  ## stop the vsftpd service 
i should think that i would no longer be allowed to sftp into my server, but it does not appear if it matters if vsftpd is running or not.

am i missing something very simple? i am wondering about the line:

Code: Select all

 Subsystem sftp internal-sftp
line in the
file, if it needs to be changed as well.

i have asked the question here as well: ... qus_thread

vsftpd is "very secure FTP daemon". FTP, not SFTP. SFTP is "SSH File Transfer Protocol".
The two are unrelated. The vsftpd might be secure among FTP daemons, but FTP is unsecured transfer protocol.
