Hi, everyone:
     It seems that there is no FTP service in BusyBox. I google through Someone told me this or that suggestion linked as below:

    They didn't took effect at all. To download inetutils-1.4.2.tar.gz
and cross-compile it, ftp doesn't work in embedded linux, reporting
"unknown service". 
    Well, my box is based on glibc, so it can't use uCdist. 
    Someone suggests troll-ftpd.c, but I don't know how to integrate it
into Busybox, could anyone tell me the howto, or to download the path?

Thanks alot!
