after spending hours trying to get my proftp server up and running, which i finally did, but now i've ran into another problem. I am able to access my ftp locally, but when i try to access it through one of my LAN computer, i get a server time out, unknown host. I've been searching all night long on google for an answer and I've not come up with a solution. please help.
Well, that's wrong since ftp is a tcp based protocol and with that rule you allow only udp. You should change it to allow tcp port 21. Use your distro's firewall config tool to do this, or run
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT
to open the port for now
ok i did what you said and i still get this error message from my windoze
Windows cannot access the folder.
Make sure you typed the file name correctly
and that you have permission to access the folder.
Details: The connection with the server was reset
Here is what I have in my proftpd.conf file
# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use. It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login. It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.
ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
# Bar use of SITE CHMOD by default
# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories. If you do not
# want anonymous users, simply delete this entire <Anonymous> section.
# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp
# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
ok you know what, I'm gonna give up on suse, it is just to much hassle, and i dont want to lose any more sleep over it. I'm gonna switch over to Ubuntu and see if i can get it working there. I've found a site that provide step to step tutorial on how to get proftpd working. I'm gonna give that a go, if that also don't work, then i'll be back here again .
Ok, well i've finish installing ubuntu and all my necessary server for hosting my web site. everything is running great, ftp and http server all up and running. now i can say to the dust bin with Suse . those i have problem accessing my window box through the firefox browser, but that is ok because i can access it through command line, so its all good
