Connection Reset by peer
I have Redhat Linux 7.1 installed on a
Dell Poweredge 2400. I aslo have WuFTPD, Apache Web Server
installed, both work fine locally on the linux box. But if I try to
ftp from a different machine ( WINDOWS 2000 PROF)
on the LAN, I get a CONNECTION RESET BY PEER message after a long waiting (3 minutes) and nothing else come out. The http also doesn't work from the Windows machine.
I also set up SAMBA on the linux box. I could even see
it in the network neighbourhood from the window
machine, but if I try to access it or map a drive for
it, it hangs for five minutes then drops me off. I
guess it relates to the same problem.
I could ping each other from both sides. I could aslo access database on the linux box from the windos machines. If I try to ftp Windows machines from the linux box, I got a
CONNECTION REFUSED message which is reasonable, since
I didn't activate the FTP service on the Windows machine.
I used an IP tool to scan the ports of the linux box
from the window machine. Ping, port 25 (SMTP),
port 1521 (Oracle) worked ok, but port 20 (ftp-data),
21(ftp), 23(telnet), 80(http) all gave me CONNECTION
RESET BY PEER messages.
I have two ethnet ports on the linux box, both seem working. I only keep one of them active.
I also tried on two different windows machines, both Widnows 2000 Pro, same problem.
I hope some gurus could help me out with this problem.
