TFTP is already in piCore, FTP or sFTP may require compiling
If you are just looking to send or receive a file to/from the Raspberry Pi, see busybox's ftpput and ftpget
If you're looking to turn it into a file server, you may want to consider alternative methods (nfs, for example) or possibly consider TFTP just because it's already built in.

tftp is another protocol to boot images and use for clonezilla ghost etc.

i need an ftpd server so my ipcamera can connect through ftp (that's the only option this ipcam has) and upload videos / images on a mounted usb flas on /mnt/sda1

TFTP is just a file service (yes, it's popular with pxe boot images)
I had completely forgotten that the older ARMv6 split off ftpd into the extension called inetutils-servers.tcz
Try that out - should lead you where you're looking to go!

attached txt with the steps i made (for some reason i cannot post this text in here Oo )

basically i made a permanent user login so i can ssh
ressized the partition of the sd
installed inetutils-servers.tcz & nano.tcz
made a script to start ftpd after restart
mounted the sda1
added ftp user/pass
and after i ps | grep ftpd tried to connect ftp localhost with no success.

See these configuration items for inet's ftpd

Remove start_ftpd.sh -- from your text file it looks like you're opening nano which would cause start_ftpd.sh to hang in limbo waiting for you to edit and save bootlocal.sh
Instead, add your launch line directly to bootlocal.sh
Code: [Select]
$(which ftpd) -4 -A -Dthen save it (filetool.sh -b) and reboot.  If it did as expected, you should see it running by entering
Code: [Select]
pidof ftpd which will return a number.
Thereafter, you should be able to connect to it with
Code: [Select]
ftp localhost
