FTP server access
I have 2 class C networks connected by a broadband router. The network on the LAN side of the router has an FTP server on Win2000server. The router is configured to expose all ports of this server to the WAN side.
On the WAN side, I have a Win98 machine that has no problem accessing this FTP server. But the other machine, a Linux one running RedHat8+Gnome cannot access this FTP server. It does connect to the address and does get logged in, but waits forever trying to get the filelist till the time that the server times out the connection.
Is there any incompatibility between MS and Linux FTPs.
i've had the same problem, except it was accessing my winxp ftp server from my yoper box on the lan. it only happened graphically, however. when i did
so doing it from a console might be more successful!
Login is no problem via console or via GUI..
The problem is that nothing happens after that.
No result from any further command like dir etc
[root@localhost root]# ftp 192.168.0.100
Connected to 192.168.0.100 (192.168.0.100).
220 Server Microsoft FTP Service (Version 5.0).
Name (192.168.0.100:root): tester
331 Password required for tester.
230 User tester logged in.
Remote system type is Windows_NT.
227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,1,12,4,116).
the problem is, there are few ftp standards with the exception of the port used, and this can cause problems, but the CLI ftp is almost always my safe bet.
