ftp won't accept real users..
Running RedHat 7.2.
I can not get ftp to accept logins. It accepts a user and password, but then puts up a login incorrect. I am trying to log in using the system's real user ids and passwords.
I was able to log in a few days ago, when I had hand installed wu-ftp, annon.. from rpms. When I re-installed my system as a RedHat 7.2 Server (wiping drive clean), (and thus got the ftp stuff automatically) I started to have troubles.
I've tried most of the tips mentioned on this board, and in the RedHat Linux 7.2 Bible under Installing FTP.
I have telnet working fine - (in fact, my Linux system normally doesn't even have a monitor on it - I telnet in to do most things).
UPDATE: I had a syntax error in ftpaccess - I was seeing the error message in the logs, but never connected it with the error.
I fixed it, and now I can log in OK. Still takes nearly a minute to get to the login request, but it gets there.
