I just got through installing my redhat 8.0, during installation I chose medium for the security, and selected ftp, ssh, http. I enabled ftp, went in /etc/xinetd.d/vsftd and set the disable to=NO. Then I restarted xinetd service by typing /etc/initd.d/xinetd restart and restarted ok. Next step I made sure ftp was up by typing netstat -a | grep ftp, get listening. I also went in /etc/vsftd.conf and made sure local_enable=Yes & write_enable=yes. When I type ftp localhost, I am prompted for username type root, than password. I get an error 530 login incorrect. I even tried logging in and out, and have no problem logging in with the root id and password.
Now for internet, I provided the proxy address with port, i have done this quite a few time, any how internet won't work either. I can ping say www.yahoo.com,
but can't go to the page. So my proxy settings are correct cause I can ping.
I am thinking that somewhere internal firewall is blocking all my access, can someone please shed some light on this issue.
Thanks in advance,
