I am using a program that requires you to login in to ftp with command:

Code:

ftp username@ftpserverip

I have set up my local machine as a ftp server and can connect to it fine like this:

Code:

ftp localftpserverip

Code:

~$ ftp *.*.*.*
Connected to *.*.*.*
220 (vsFTPd 2.0.6)
Name (*.*.*.*:*******): *******
331 Please specify the password.
Password:
230 Login successful.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

when i try this however:

Code:

ftp localuser@localftpserverip

it doesn't work:

Code:

ftp *******@**.*.*.*
ftp: *******@**.*.*.*: Unknown host
ftp> ls
Not connected.
ftp>

how can i fix this?
