NAME

     vsftpd - Very Secure FTP Daemon


SYNOPSIS

     vsftpd [configuration file]


DESCRIPTION

     vsftpd is the Very Secure File Transfer Protocol Daemon. The server can
     be launched via a “super-server” such as inetd(8) or xinetd(8).  Alterna-
     tively, vsftpd can be launched in standalone mode, in which case vsftpd
     itself will listen on the network. This latter mode is easier to use, and
     recommended. It is activated by setting listen=YES in
     /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf.  Direct execution of the vsftpd binary will then
     launch the FTP service ready for immediate client connections.


OPTIONS

     An optional [configuration file] may be given on the command line. This
     configuration files has to be owned by root. The default configuration
     file is /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf.
