How to enable FTP in HP-UX?

Most of the time, FTP is enabled in HP-UX systems. For some reason, if it is not enabled, here is how to enable it:
  1. Login to system as root
  2. Look for a file called "/etc/shells"
  3. If /etc/shells is not present, then create this file and put "/bin/tcsh" in this file.
  4. FTP should work now. :-)

% cat /etc/shells
