Having a problem with an AIX server providing FTP services. The clients are various flavors of Windows that are able to use public FTP sites with no problems. The software vendor had me dropping out of their GUI and opening a dos prompt. Here's what's happening:
1) FTP session opens and prompts for user/pwd. (using Root to trouble shoot)
2) I can do commands such as cd and stat with no problems.
3) When I issue a get or ls command the system gives a 425 Error.
When looking at the inetd.conf file ftp port 21 and 20 have been un-rem'd. I can do the above commands from the console connected to the server no problems.
My understanding of the 425 error is that no TCP connection was available. Am I looking at a rights/permissions problem, something blocking port 20/21 or a network routing problem?
Workstations and server on same subnet, no routers in the mix. The reason I bring up a routing problelm is the route table shows something I thought was wierd.
The AIX server address is 192.168.1.250, while the gateway for our workstations is 192.168.1.1. One other tid bit, another route 127.0.0./24 has a gateway of 192.168.1.1.
I am a novice at best on AIX, any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated!
