1) I have started the FTP daemon i.e. vsftpd but remote users (on LAN) are not able to ftp to my server
2) I have started the VNC service but remote users (on LAN) are not able to connect to my server
3) Users can't connect through WinSCP too.
I had faced similar problems with Fedora Core 4 earlier.
oh yeah, u go it right. The default Fedora firewall blocks everything. I allowed the ftp and samba services in the firewall and it's working now.
The only problem remaining is VNC now. I am unable to connect to my Linux machine through Windows using VNC viewer. It gives the following error:
"Unable to connect to host: A socket operation was attempted to an unreacheable host. (10065)
I am not able to connect to my HTTPD server from my LAN. In the local system it works fine. But when i call the web page from my LAN it gives the error the page not found..
Please post the steps you used to solve the problem
Thanks in advance
I don't know the exact problem. But you can try to disable the firewall and SELinux completely. You can disable both from the System->Administration menu. It worked on my machine but doesn't work on 2 more machines in my LAN. It might be a network problem too if the IPs from where you are trying to access your HTTPD server is not on same subnet. So make sure that you are able to ping your HTTPD server from the client machine.
This problem comes only in Fedora...everything works in Ubuntu by default, so you can try using Ubuntu too.
