Hi @vishal0708

Use sudo while using chmod or chown.

Done , but while executing still getting error
sudo chmod +x vsftpd_v1 vsftpd_v1.conf
crio-user@vis08cs:~/workspace/QBox$ vsftpd_v1
vsftpd_v1: command not found
crio-user@vis08cs:~/workspace/QBox$ sudo chown root vsftpd_v1 vsftpd_v1.conf
crio-user@vis08cs:~/workspace/QBox$ sudo vsftpd_v1

Hi @vishal0708

You are not able to figure put how to execute the vsftpd server.

vsftpd needs vsftpd.conf as argument.

Try to figure out how to execute vsftpd server .

crio-user@vis08cs:~/workspace/QBox$ sudo ./vsftpd_v1 vsftpd_v1.conf

^C
crio-user@vis08cs:~/workspace/QBox$

@ved-prakash-CrioTAHow to know that the vsftpd_v1 server has started successfully

Hi @vishal0708

Search google for how to check if a service is running.

Commands like ps top htop will help.
