  2. Startup components:
    • An init.d script is supplied to allow sfptpd to be started using standard Linux service: start, stop, restart, status commands.

      The init.d script should be copied to /etc/rc.d/init.d.

    • An example systemd UNIT file can be found in Automatic Startup.
    • Default configuration files for all modes are located in the config subdirectory of the install directory.
