Hi scialom,

I don't know what kind of software do you use and which distrib but look errors in /var/log/messages file.

If you use tcp_wrapper take a look in /etc/hosts.allow.
Verify your config and last but not least do you have start your ftp service.
That's stupid but sometime it the cause of failed connexion.

if you have install proftpd with rpm package you have in /etc/init.d/ a script call proftpd
so
do under root
# service proftpd start (redhat) or
/etc/init.d/proftpd start

or
/sbin/proftpd -n -c /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf (your config file of proftpd)

bye and good luck
Welcome to linux world.

Furthermore, it sounds as though you've not got the ftpd running. Check by doing:
$ nmap localhost
and if it's listening, you should see something like:
21/tcp open ftp
Otherwise, you're gonna need to start it...

No compilator found

Hi,

That"s mean you don't have gcc compilator for your suse 8.0. Install gcc suse package.
Bye

Thanks it solved this problem.

But...
In the readme doc they say that after running ./configure (that run just fine) I have to run this command:

make install-strip
I get this error:

bash: make: command not found

Do I need to intall something else?

Thanks again,
Assaf
