    FTP server on FC2


    I've installed FC2 successfully, and logged in etc etc

    I'm now trying to transfer files from an old box, to this one, and the only way I can do this, realistically, is via FTP....

    However, I can't seem to connect to the FTP port on the server. It comes up with "An Unknown Error Number". Does this mean I haven't started the service?

    Can anyone give me some suggestions?

    Thanks

    Re: FTP server on FC2

    did you check whether vsftpd is installed or NOT?
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep -i ftpd
    if you get any PACKAGE name as result, you've got FTP server installed and you need to start it. if NOT you need to INSTALL FTP Server.

    Thanks for the help... I'm now getting a bit further...

    vsftpd is installed (version 1.2.1), and running - assuming it runs automatically when listen=YES, as it suggests in the manual.

    However, it is still coming up with the same error, whether I try and connect using root or anonymous.

    I'm still stumped!

    Sorry to hastle folks.... but this is really starting to annoy me!

    I've looked up loads of stuf on the net, but none of it has fixed the problem.

    It would seem that everything is correctly configured... but I still can't connect. I've closed down the whole firewall, to remove that possibility... and am still really stuck....

    Please help!!!!

    Connecting through FTP as root in *DENIED* by default. try connecting as normal user.

    here's a useful FAQ!
