Hey all, when i try to log into my ftp server it gives me an error message saying

530 must perform authentication before identifying user

What does this mean, and how do i fix it?

Thanx all!

that means you must give your username and password. are you using the console ftp program? because thats the best one. to use it, type ftp (name of your web server here), hit enter, it will ask for username and pass, youll give, then youll be in the server. once in there, type ls to list files on server, get (filename here) to get a file from server, put (filename here) to put file on server, and delete (filename here) guess what delete does .

Did you do a Google search on that exact string?

Did you check this search result to see if it explained your problem?

hmmm...i don't really know what passive mode is....i am pretty sure that this problem has to do with kerberos authentication that the ftp server needs which i don't want to set up. Can anyone recomend their favorite ftp servers to me? Thanx guys.

Why did you not check the URL I posted and go right to the end of the page for the solution for eliminating the kerberos authentication problem?
