Please know I am but a beginner.

I am having trouble installing a VSFTPD server on my computer. My issue is when I ask for service vsftpd, it doesn't recognize it as a service.

[username]@[computer name]:~$ sudo service vsftpd

vsftpd: unrecognized service

What am I doing wrong and how do I fix it. Many thanks, Tim.

To start vsftpd, you need to run -

sudo service vsftpd start

instead of -

sudo service vsftpd
