ftpd is installed as a daemon in OpenBSD as the OS is installed.
In order to use it, run
rcctl enable and
rcctl start, and it's almost done.
The daemon is disabled:
# rcctl check ftpd ftpd(failed)
# rcctl enable ftpd
/etc/rc.conf.local is updated:
# cat /etc/rc.conf.local ftpd_flags=
# rcctl start ftpd ftpd(ok)
Now FTP server is running.
As long as there is no network issues, you can establish ftp connection to the server 😉
* Caution: Accessing as
root is forbidden.
OpenBSD provides us several files, that is several ways, to add more configuration about such as
chroot and authentication.
