    FTP Trouble

    I installed RH 7.0 workstation with wu-ftpd and xinetd. It worked at the beginning but now it is not.

    When I try to ftp to the workstation from my Win98 PC, I get the following.

    C:\WINDOWS>ftp 192.168.47.50
    Connected to 192.168.47.50.
    Connection closed by remote host.

    On the workstation system monitor when I try to connect, I see the following:

    PID: * * * * * *1459
    User: * * * * * root
    Pri: * * * * * * *10
    size: * * * * * *764
    Resident: * *764
    Stat: * * * * * * S N
    CPU * * * * * * 0.0
    MEM * * * * * *1.9
    Time * * * * * * 0.03s
    Cmd * * * * * * in.ftpd

    I have no ideas what might be wrong. Any help would be great.

    You're going to have to be way more specific to get any useful help, because the only thing we have to give you are wild ass guesses.

    Did you do anything to the system around when it stopped working? Are you ftp'ing to the right server? Are you connecting to the right port?

    Are you sure the server is up on the Linux box? Are you using port 21? What username/pass are you trying, make sure the user/pass you are trying has a shell account. Post back with a little more info.

    I setup an apache web server and changed the IP from dynamic ip to static ip. *

    Are you ftp'ing to the right server?
    Ping works to the workstation. I can ftp out of the workstation to the internet. *I can connect to the web page on the workstation.

    Are you connecting to the right port?
    In the services file : ftp is set to 21

    Are you sure the server is up on the Linux box? *
    I see that xinetd is running and when I try to ftp the server, I see that in.ftpd in the sys monitor.


    What username/pass are you trying, make sure the user/pass you are trying has a shell account.
    Im not getting the login or password prompt


    additional info:
    In my /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd file: Disable = no

    Try to connect, then look at /var/log/messages . The error message should be there (probably something similar to /usr/bin/in.ftpd not found).
    You may also try to telnet to the ftp port to see if the server replies. (# telnet 192.168.47.50 21).

    Have you tried to add a line in the file saying: Enable=yes ?
    Has Xinetd been given the -HUP signal ?
    Is there some sort of entrance in /etc/hosts.deny /etc/hosts.allow, which prohibits the IP you're trying to connect from ?

    Also, if this server is behind a NAT connection to you, you need to turn passive mode off on your FTP client.

    Honestly, I would ditch wu, it's problematic, and get proftpd, rpm's can be found at www.freshrpms.net

    Re: FTP Trouble

    when I try : ftp 192.168.47.50, *I get the following in the /var/log/messages:

    Mar 4 21:16:15 *madmen ftpd[8141]: lost connection to 192.168.47.102 [192.168.47.102]
    Mar 4 21:16:15 *madmen ftpd[8141]: FTP *session closed


    When I first install wu-ftpd, The workstation was using dynamic IP(192.168.47.102)

    I had to change the workstation to a static IP (192.168.47.50) so I can forward the Http port.

    Do I need to change something with the ftpd files or network?
    Do I need to remove the wu-ftpd and reinstall? if so how do u remove a rpm?

    Equipment and software used:
    Router - Linksys 4 port
    Linux PC - Gateway 2200 solo
    other PC - WIN98 and Win2000
    Linux software - Redhat 7.0
    FTP software - WU-FTP-2.6.1
    web server - apache 1.3
