glftpd

Postby FrankRizz0 » 2011-12-27 15:00

Morning all, been a very long time since I last ran Debian, so I need a little help installing glftpd. I had Debian installed on a remote machine, downloaded glftpd ( wget http://www.glftpd.com/files/glftpd-LNX_2.01.tgz )and received this error when I tried to extract it:

tar -xzf glftpd-LNX_2.01.tgz

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Thanks in advance for any help!

Could it be because glftpd.com now points to some Russian company (balakovosoft.ru)?

(Just a hunch.)

Those sites has different IP addresses, but www.glftpd.com requires a password.

Not relevant. An HTTP request to glftpd.com 301s to balakovosoft.ru.

A quick Google search for glftpd suggests that the "official" site for glftpd is now defunct. It has been replaced by a "semi-official" site that seems to have the relevant files available for download.

why you don't try to use vsftpd or pure-ftpd or whatever ftp server?
