Redhat 8.0 ftp connection refused


After looking at the numerous posts for ftp problems, I finally gave in and posted. I just set up a web server on a Redhat 8.0 distro. I want to use ftp to put files on the server from another pc on my local network. The server can ftp out just fine, but if I try to ftp from another pc into the server, it says "connection refused."

I ran netstat -tl |grep "ftp" and found nothing.

As mentioned in several posts, I looked for an ftp configuration file in /etc/xinetd.d/, but there was no such file. Two files that I thought might be useful, services and servers, I don't know what to do with.

Several posts mentioned that the ftp server might not be installed. Is this different from /sbin/ftp? Do I need an ftp server in order to ftp into the box?

Any help would be much appreciated thanks

Well I don't really know what to answer here since client = client and server = server. If you want to SERVE for people you need a server ... maybe this helps you to understand what difference between client and server is!

Yes. I guess that was a pretty dumb question. I just figured that since my Mandrake 8.0 installed the ftp server right on its own that redhat would too. I guess I will look for the ftp server to install then. Thanks

Red Hat 8.0 comes with two FTP server:

CD-1:vsftpd-1.1.0-1.i386.rpm
CD-3:wu-ftpd-2.6.2-8.i386.rpm

I recomment vsftpd. Install it and then run this:

chkconfig vsftpd on

And check your ipchains/iptables ruleset and make sure that it allows incoming ftp connection (use lokkit to set this up).
