74 <title>Installation of NcFTP</title>
75
76 <para>There are two ways to build <application>NcFTP</application>.
77 The first (and optimal) way builds most of the functionality as a shared library
78 and then builds and installs the program linked against this library. The
79 second method simply links all of the functionality into the binary statically.
80 This doesn't make the dynamic library available for linking by other applications.
81 You need to choose which method best suits you. Note that the second method
82 does <emphasis>not</emphasis> create an entirely statically linked binary;
83 only the <filename class="libraryfile">libncftp</filename> parts are statically
84 linked in, in this case. Be aware that building and using the shared library is
85 covered by the Clarified Artistic License; however, developing applications that
86 utilize the shared library is subject to a different license.</para>
87
88 <para>To install <application>NcFTP</application> using the
89 first (and optimal) method, run the following commands:</para>
90
91<screen><userinput>./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc &amp;&amp;

101
102 <para>To install <application>NcFTP</application> using the

104 functionality linked in statically) run the following commands:</para>
105
106<screen><userinput>./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc &amp;&amp;

151 <para>Most <application>NcFTP</application> configuration
152 is done while in the program, and the configuration files are dealt with
153 automatically. One exception to this is <filename>~/.ncftp/prefs_v3</filename>.
154 There are various options to alter in there, including:</para>
155
156<screen><literal>yes-i-know-about-NcFTPd=yes</literal></screen>
157
158 <para>This disables the splash screen advertising the
159 <application>NcFTPd</application> server.</para>
160
161 <para>There are other options in the <filename>prefs_v3</filename> file.
162 Most of these are self-explanatory. Global defaults can be set in
163 <filename>/etc/ncftp.prefs_v3</filename>.</para>
