2 OEL 4.8 32 bit servers cannot ftp to each other using security but anon ftp works.


Hi all this is my first post:

Has anyone seen this problem before?
I have 2 Oracle Enterprise Linux 4.8 32 bit servers and i cannot use ftp.
Our PeopleSoft application module has a requirement to use ftp and not sftp or scp so we kind of locked to use ftp.

Here are the errors i receive when i try to ftp to the server itself.
I'm putting in the right username and password:

[root@servald01 /]# ftp servald01.corp.lang.com
Connected to servald01.corp.lang.com.
220 Welcome to SERVALD01 FTP service.
530 Please login with USER and PASS.
530 Please login with USER and PASS.
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
Name (servald01.corp.lang.com:root): root
331 Please specify the password.
Password:
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.
ftp>

Any help appreciated

Thank you

Hi,

most ftp server do not allow root login.

Not sure which ftp server you are using.

To allow root login in vsftpd, edit the files /etc/vsftpd.ftpusers and /etc/vsftpd.user_list and remove the ‘root’ line from each file.

Unfortunately i do not have mentioned files on my servers.
I do have vsftp installed:
chkconfig --list| grep ftp
xinetd based services:
gssftp: off
vsftpd: on

rpm -qa | grep ftp
lftp-3.0.6-8.el4
ftp-0.17-23.el4_6.1

Hi,

so did you edit the configuration files, restarted vsftpd and test if it works?

No.
I had to register my servers with ULN and run up2date to reinstall vsftpd.
Turns out someone else tried installing vsftpd and corrupted some files.
I forgot to mention that i ftp using psoft user.

Now i can ftp between servers.

thank you
