Is your network config

I understand that after connecting to your remote Linux server, you want to reach an IP addres 10.X.X.X that is on the Remote's Local Network, am I right? well... first make sure that the other end is listening on the ftp port... is a network problem not a Linux one but here is some troubleshooting:

If the addres 10.X.X.X is on the remote server's local network, then try the following:
1. Ping the 10.X.X.X address.
2. Make sure that the FTP Server is running properly and listening to that address.
3. If you can ping but you cannot connect to ftp, then check your ftp config.

Next time please include more information about your error messages or so... Have a nice day

yes u got it correctly.thanks for the reply.
when i tried to access thru telnet and ftp,it says as connection refused. but it pings well.
Actually, i need to work on a scripting language which is on the particular machine having ip address 10.xx.x.xx
when i try with sftp, it connects but the permission is denied. i'm sure with the password and the authorisation.
wat to do now

It depends upon the distro you are using also. By default when you install telnet in fc the telnet from clients is disabled. Go to the telnet config file and change the line saying,
disable = yes to,
disable = no.

Restart the telnet server.

For debian, do a /etc/init.d/inetd restart
