I am having issues connecting to my linux box (opensuse 11.3) from my Window 7 sytem. I am using FileZilla. When I attempt to connect I get this error message
Status: Connecting to 192.168.198.205...
Response: fzSftp started
Command: open "Mike@192.168.198.205" 22
Command: Trust new Hostkey: Once
Command: Pass: *********
Error: Authentication failed.
Error: Critical error
Error: Could not connect to server
I am thinking it is a setup on issue on my Linux box but not sure what to change at this point. I must have some settings correct, because I am able to remote into my Linux box using FreeNX. Any help would be appreciated
It says authentication failed. Are you sure you are putting up correct password? Or correct username or correct combination of both? does the user exist in the first place? Is the user allowed to login?
I am using the correct username and password. Because I am able to remote into the system using Freenx using the same username and password that I am using for FileZilla. I tried turning off the firewall to see if that worked but I still get authenitication failed with the firewall off. Also I am not sure what log to look at in this directory /var/log. Could there a service that I need to enable or a specific group I need to add the user to, to gain access via FileZilla? Thanks
When I goto cmd prompt in window and type ftp 192.168.198.206 (which is the new IP for my Linux box). It brings me to this.
I am thinking that means I am connected. But I am not sure. I do have both ports open 21 & 22 on my linux machine. And I believe that FreeNX which I can connect successfully is via port 22. I tried to access via port 21 on FileZilla unsuccessfully. Here is the output.
Status: Connecting to 192.168.198.206:21...
Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry...
Not sure what logs to look to see why my connections for are being refused. Any other suggestions or ideas would be very helpful
