Thread: Can't ftp to server (not even to localhost)

  1. #1

    Can't ftp to server (not even to localhost)

    I installed an ISP manager program called 42goISP. Since I installed it I can no longer ftp to the server..... can;t even "ftp localhost" from directly on the server.
    The error message is simply "connection refused". I realize I can uninstall it and use FTP again but I'd like to understand the problem so I can talk with their tech support.
    I'm running Mandrake 10 linux and proftpd . There is no firewall runnning (at least before the install of 42goISP).

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to troubleshoot this problem?
    For example: how can I tell if a firewall or something is restricting access to port 21?

    Dear
    Hello,

    First Check that your FTP Server is Running !!

    # netstat -a | grep ftp

    Second use Nmap to scan your localhost ports.

    # nmap -Up 21 127.0.0.1

    If you find no result then you must check your firewall.

    # iptables -L INPUT -n --line | grep 21
    # iptables -L OUTPUT -n --line | grep 21
    # iptables -L FORWARD -n --line | grep 21


    Best Regards.
