On Suse Linux10 I have installed Apache and pure_ftpd using YaSt in order to use for local testing.
Problem: logged into machine as root, get as far as the line that asks for 'Password' but then the cursor won't respond
linux:~ # ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd ----------
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 17:22. Server port: 21.
220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Name (localhost:root): root
331 User root OK. Password required
Using SmartFTP from a windows machine on the local network I get
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
Clearly I'm missing something
It is probably obvious, but I can't see it at the moment
