Angry Permissions Add User


So, I'm working on getting a FTP server running.

I'm getting the 530 Permission Error.

I can login to the FTP server perfectly on my Linux box by typing "ftp localhost", but whenever I try on my other PC that is on the same network, it doesn't seem to login.

Quote:
Status: Connecting to 192.168.1.19:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220 (vsFTPd 2.2.2)
Command: USER root
Response: 530 Permission denied.
Error: Could not connect to server
The main question is, how in the hell do I give permissions to that user? I want to give full permissions to my user "bloodfuryzombie".

Thanks

The credentials on the other machine are no good. You can look at or create the ".netrc" file in the home directory of the user.

Code:
man ftp

man ssh

I have a arch systems in my personal network and use ssh all the time to do maitenance on all the users. I generated a key and copied those keys to the other clients so I can have paswordless login. I mention this because on my system FTP appears to use the same credential system as I do not have a .netrc file and I do not need a password to log in.

Hopefully these two leads help.

Is the iptables running in your server?You can use this command to check that:
Code:
service iptables status
.Also you can check your vsftpd.conf with the path
Code:
/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
to see if there is any limit.

You can have a look at that conf file,and check if the value of "userlist_enable" is "YES",change it from "YES" to "NO".Then restart the service of vsftpd,and have a try.

If you go to a teerminal prompt and type "man" then the command the online manual will come up.

According to the online manual for ftp the credentials are checked before login in the ~.netrc (hidden file in the users home directory.)

I do not have that on my personal network but have set up credentials for ssh sessions.

Code:
Run at terminal from the machine that is trying to connect:

sshkeygen
-- Genrates a key to be shared.

ssh-copy-id

--- Use this command to copy to the host your credentials

Hope this clears it up somewhat.
