I'm running FC4 (yes, plans to upgrade to FC5, Real Soon Now). The way
I configured it I can't access FTP sites as a user. I used the
system-config-securitylevel tool to "enable firewall" and the services
I enabled are "Secure WWW (HTTPS)", "WWW (HTTP)", and "SSH". That
works for 99.3% of what I do, but I'd like to be able to access FTP
sites as well. Right now I can't. But I only want to be an FTP client,
never a server. Nobody needs to access this machine. What is the least
permissive way of allowing me to function as an FTP client?
