Before You Enable the FTP Server

Before you enable the FTP server, configure the authentication procedure for the vty lines, as follows:

  1. Configure host access lists.
  2. Configure user authentication methods.
  3. Configure the vty lines to use the host access lists and user authentication methods.

You can specify authentication by a RADIUS server or by password checking. If you choose no authentication service, any client can access the FTP server. For information about authentication on vty lines, see Configuring vty Lines.
