problem using ftp


Im using Fedora and its pretty cool. I installed ftp with the instructions from a book I have. The install seemed to be successfull. But when I go to the prompt I have troubles. I type in:

ftp 192.bla.bla.bla

It says:

Connected to 192.bla.bla.bla
220 (vsFTPd 2.0.1)
530 please login with USER and PASS
530 please login with USER and PASS
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
Name (192.bla.bla.bla:root):


So then I try typing the ROOT as user and the password for it but I get Login Failed. Why? Yes Im typing it in correctly.

Hi Chris,

What you've put in your post:

is the command to connect to another machine via ftp. I assume this is what you're trying to do? You've set up ftp access to another PC on your network and you're trying to test the acccess?

Or are you trying to connect to another remote computer that's nothing to do with you?

Or finally, are you trying to start the ftp daemon on your machine to allow incoming ftp requests?

If you could clarify what it is you're trying to achieve....

Cheers,

Steve

Im was trying to test on the same maching that the ftp server is installed on. I just tried it from another machine though and it works with a user other than root. Im guessing my first test couldnt have worked from the machine the server was installed on? Do you know yhy cant I connect using root?

Well, it depends on which ftp daemon that you're using, but I know that, for example, in ProFTPD you can specify in the proftpd.conf file what you want the lowest uid and gid to be that can log in. And if these directives have been set, it's certain to be set higher than 0.

Would you really want root to be able to log in for FTP, or are you just curious as to why it didn't work?

Have to admit though, I've never tried ftping to myself, could well be that the daemon would not allow it.

Cheers,

Steve
