Wu-ftp Weirdness


Hey guys.. just wondering if any of you have come across this before? For some reason when I FTP to my box from windows in IE, I'm no longer prompted to login as I've always been for the past few months. Now, instead, it will just get to the default /bin, /etc, /lib & /pub directories which are non writable by users except for root. Prior to this problem.. users were able to FTP and then be prompted for the uid and pass then go right to their home directories based on their credentials.

any ideas would be appreciated!

thanks

Chris

IE, by default tries to login with 'anonymous'. Try to use another ftp client (like the 'ftp' command) and login using 'anonymous'. If it works, you've found your answer. If it doesn't let you in, somehow IE has cached your username and password crudentials. If that's not true, then I've lost my freakin' mind and I don't know what I'm talking about.

Thanks for the reply and no you haven't lost your mind! lol
I should have mentioned that I did try a DOS FTP session and that it did prompt me for uid and pass. I didn't think about the cache possibility and that could very well be the cause on my end but that would not explain why another user on another box doesn't get prompted for uid and pass the first time ever trying to ftp'n in my box. The strange thing is that it used to always prompt in the past and for some strange reason now it does not and as I mentioned, I did not make any conf file changes... I'll get to the root of it eventually I guess

thanks

Chris
