So, I am relatively new to Linux, and I set up an ftp on my friends computer so I could download some of his files, It's Red hat 8 running vsftpd (I hope!)
anyway, When on his machine or logged in remotely via ssh, I can say "Ftp localhost" and it works fine, asks for my username/password and then allows me to view my files.
Now, when I came home and tried to do the same, it said :
[xgkkp@nick xgkkp]$ ftp 80.X.XXX.X
Connected to 80.X.XXX.X (80.X.X.X).
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
Does anyone have a clue what is going on? He's directly connected through a cable modem, and I am through a firewall-type-thing.
Thanks a lot,
