I have tried installing a couple ftp apps and all result in a "bash: ftp: command not found" error.
Searching around it seems Fedora 15 Server has 'not applied the path' to the ftp 'executable'.
Can anyone offer some insight here? Linux is not my strong hold and am doing what I can to learn…

Id suggest uninstalling that, and installing either ncftp, or lftp.
you could also use 'yum whatprovides*bin/ftp' to get a list of all applications that give you a ftp binary
The issue that I was looking at from the wrong angle is that I need a means of 'ftp' on the server side for a couple applications to automatically configure themselves. I was looking at things wrong by the error received trying to````
````to test the ProFTP installation.
Now I am on the more appropriate track and researching config info to set up this server properly.
This FTP solution will not be enabled all the time. Only as needed. SFTP is the manner used for all remote connections to the server.
Thanks for the info, I will keep it in my notes.
