Prerequesties
Make sure those are installed. On RHEL,
rpm -q \
nfs-utils portmap \
vsftpd \
httpd \
unzip \
| grep ^package
 
 
FTP service with RHEL
Make sure anonymous FTP logins are enabled,
grep ^ftp /etc/passwd
grep ^ftp /etc/group
grep anonymous_enable /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
 
Eventually delete the default public folder,
#cd /var/ftp/
#rmdir pub
 
Fix the perms for ftpadmin,
useradd -g ftp -d /var/ftp ftpadmin
passwd ftpadmin
chown -R ftpadmin:ftp /var/ftp/
 
Enable,
service vsftpd restart
chkconfig vsftpd on
rhel7,
systemctl start vsftpd
systemctl enable vsftpd
 
FTP service with NetBSD
Enable anonymous FTP,
grep ^ftp: /etc/passwd
useradd -b /var -m -g daemon ftp
 
Fix the perms (otherwise by default, anonymous users are able to upload, not to remove though, shit into the main guest directory). Assuming you've got a prefered wheeled user at hand. Otherwise and simply 'root'. And create an upload dir,
cd /var/
ls -l
chown wheeluser:daemon ftp/
cd ftp/
mkdir -p upload/
chown ftp:daemon upload/
Note. Change 'wheeluser' accordingly.
 
Enable and start the ftp daemon,
cd /etc/
grep ftp defaults/rc.conf
cat >> rc.conf <<EOF9
ftpd=yes
EOF9
rc.d/ftpd start
 
NFS service
Configure the NFS share,
cd /etc
vi exports
like,
/var/ftp *(ro,async,no_root_squash)
#/var/ftp *(rw,async,no_root_squash)
 
Enable,
service nfs restart
chkconfig nfs on
 
 
HTTP service
Configure Apache 2 on RHEL5,
rpm -q httpd
cd /etc/httpd/conf
mv httpd.conf httpd.conf.dist
sed '/^[[:space:]]*$/d; /^[[:space:]]*#/d;' httpd.conf.dist > httpd.conf.dist.clean
#sed 's/root@localhost/YOUR_EMAIL/' httpd.conf.dist.clean > httpd.conf
sed 's|/var/www/html|/var/ftp|' httpd.conf.dist.clean > httpd.conf
note. directory listing (Indexes) is enabled for /var/ftp by default !
fix things,
cd ../conf.d
mv proxy_ajp.conf proxy_ajp.conf.dist
mv welcome.conf welcome.conf.dist
 
Start and enable the daemon at startup,
service httpd restart
chkconfig httpd on
 
 
Slackware installation files
We don't need the whole DVD, a few sets are enought,
cd /var/ftp
mkdir -p slackware64-13.1/slackware64
cd slackware64-13.1/slackware64
  lftp ftp://ftp.slackware.at/slackware64-13.1/slackware64/
mirror a
mirror ap
mirror d
mirror l
mirror n
those might also be usefull...,
cd ..
lcd ..
mirror isolinux
mirror kernels
mirror pasture
mirror usb-and-pxe-installers
 
 
Windows XP installation files
(hmm... you need to enable Samba here). Eventually share the Windows XP installation files for network installations with WinPE,
mkdir -p /var/ftp/winxp/
cd /var/ftp/winxp/
with those,
$OEM$/$1/...
I386/
diskpart.lst
install.bat
winxp.sif
