i will show you in this tutorial how to install Vsftpd with ssl/tls . i think installing an  normal vsftpd server is not difficult even for an beginner on Linux let me show you my server info :

 

Server  : Centos 7.5
IP  = 192.168.0.210
Hostname = osradar.centos.local

First  Update  your  system

yum  update  -y

Install openssl with  this Command

yum  install   openssl -y

Let us create a directory to store SSL certificates.

mkdir /etc/ssl/private

Lets Create Certificates and keys for Vsftpd Server  with this Command :

openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /etc/ssl/private/vsftpd.pem -out /etc/ssl/private/vsftpd.pem

 

Install VSftpd  Server

yum install -y  vsftpd

Enable and  start vsftpd

systemctl   enable vsftpd 
systemctpd  start vsftpd

Add the following lines at the end:

vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
ssl_enable=YES
allow_anon_ssl=NO
force_local_data_ssl=YES
force_local_logins_ssl=YES
ssl_tlsv1=YES
ssl_sslv2=NO
ssl_sslv3=NO
rsa_cert_file=/etc/ssl/private/vsftpd.pem
rsa_private_key_file=/etc/ssl/private/vsftpd.pem

 

Allow the FTP  to the firewall rules

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=21/tcp firewall-cmd --reload

 

Restart  vsftpd  and connect  from ftp client  in my situation Am using filezilla

systemctl restart vsftpd

Activate  Active mode from settings to simplify the connection and connect

Accept the   Certificate

 

Please  Enjoy , Cheers !!
