I am trying to use FTP, but I cannot use FTP either over a website or trying to connect to cuteFTP.
If I do nmap it says FTP is closed. I need to find out how to open the FTP port/service.
Im not sure what distribution you are using but on Redhat and Fedora, if you run, from the terminal console, "chkconfig --list | grep ftpd" that will tell you if you have an FTP daemon installed (there are several). If you do, then you can start with "service ftpd start"Originally Posted by madreid
If the chkconfig indicates that it is installed and running (indicated by "on") then you may wish to look at possibly your firewall (iptables) to see if port 21 and/or 22 is open for connections.
