can connect to it using smart FTP but it disconnects shortly after entering passive mode (not familiar with smartFTP)it does what my browser does...connects correctly with username/password then sits there for a while and then gives me this(after entering passive mode):
0 bytes transferred. (N/A/s) (0 ms)
Active Help: http://www.smartftp.com/support/kb/index.php/74
Client closed the connection.
Automatic failover of data connection mode from "Passive Mode (PASV)" to "Active Mode (PORT)".
But I can connect using console commands from both (windows,linux). I just want browser access so my friends can access/view the contents of these accounts without software or needing to know how to use console.
also why wont my dir or ln command not work when connected through linux console...if I try them it sais "227 Entering Passive Mode (192.168.1.102.229.99)"...does that if I try any command it doesn't like.
