Installed Fedora, Can't ftp to Fedora machine from Windows PC?

Post by santa19992 » Mon, 20 Dec 2004 07:25:02


I Installed fedora, when I do "rpm -qa | grep ftp" I can see below
list:

ftp-0.17-18
gftp-2.0.14-5
lftp-2.6.5-4
vsftpd-1.2.0-5

when I do ftp xx.xx.xx.xx from windows machine (where xx.xx.xx.xx is IP
address of Fedora machine), I can see below error, but I can ping
fedora machine from Windows machine.

ftp xx.xx.xx.xx
ftp>

also on my fedora machine, if do what are in /etc/xinetd.d directory, I
can't see any file with ftp name at all. samething for telnet, but
windows PC if use putty, it should be OK, but telnet won't work from
PC.

I am wondering, all rpm's installed on fedora machine(telnet rpm's and
ftp rpm's), why not those services are not working?.
Thnaks in adavance.

The one you care about is vsftpd, because it's a server. Read "man
vsftpd" where it says it could be run via xinetd but suggests that
you run it standalone, by directly executing its binary. That explains
why there's no xinetd config file for vsftpd in /etc/xinetd.d. You
could write one and put it there if you wanted to use xinetd.
Otherwise,

/usr/sbin/vsftpd &

(& puts it in the background) should bring ftp service to life.

For telnet, an xinetd.d config file is provided. It's
/etc/xinted.d/conf. Tell xinetd to take over management of telnet by
changing the "disable = " line in that file from "no" to "yes" then
restart xinetd. You restart it by

service xinetd restart

In comp.os.linux.setup XXXX@XXXXX.COM :


Sounds like client packages, not server.


This is a ftp(d) server, you can see which files came with it and
general info, using:

rpm -qil vsftpd

man rpm # for more info

[..]

If ssh is working, there's no reason to use ftp, try a google
search for "winscp" and download a recent version, you can use
this (scp secure copy) to securely copy files, without any
modification on you Linux box, from some shinny GUI.

Good luck

Correction.

the xinetd config file for telnet is /etc/xinetd.d/telnet
