FTP trouble, can anyone help? (David Ross, perhaps!)


Hi all,

I have a Red Hat 8.0 Professional machine running as a DNS, Samba, DHCP, Senmail, etc server for a Microsucks Windoze network. I seem to be having a little problem. Please forgive me, I'm getting a little better, but I'm still something of a

The problem I am having is on the Wondows machines. I cannot access FTP folders on web sites. If I go to a website, say www.samba.org, and I try to enter an FTP folder, I get the following error:

An error occurred opening that folder on the FTP Server. Make sure you have permission to access that folder.

Detail:
200 Type set to A
500 Illegal PORT Command
500 'LPRT 6,16,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,67,0,0,0,0,0,133,96,2,10,92': command not understood.


I seem to remember that I have had this problem before, and it was something on the Linux server. I can't recall what might be causing this problem. Does anyone else have any thoughts?

I'd appreciate any thoughts, everyone! Thanks!

Chris

Could be that you need to enable/disable passive mode ftp for the browsers to connect.

You can also go into Tools>Internet Options click the advanced tab and toggle the passive ftp option for Internet Explorer.

If that doesn't help, then maybe you just need to chmod the folders you are trying to access....

your windoze ftp client seems to try to negotiate a data port for file transfers using the "LPORT" command (for some non-IP protocol?)

what client do you use ?
probably switching to "passive mode" may help.

Or check your firewall rules setting. It should allows UDP port 21 and TCP port 21. Simple testing would be stop the firewall service and try to FTP. You will get the result.

FTP

I am not using an FTP client, just Internet Explorer. I enabled passive mode ftp in internet explorer, and I can get to the FTP sites now, but I recall that when I had this problem before, I had to do something (I don't remember what) to the Linux server, but not to the windows clients. Bear in mind that I am not trying to access folders that I can just chmod. These were FTP sites on the web. As far as checking the firewall settings, Lent, how would I go about doing that? Can I use "service firewall stop" on the Linux server? What is the command to stop, and then start the Linux server. Like I said, still somewhat of a newbie. Thanks all!

Chris

hmm, look, I don't mean to get judgemental, but if you want to ftp, ftp from the command line or a client like gftp or any of the win clients like cuteftp or wsftp. It's good that you are getting into linux! part of the linux world is using the right tools for the job! Good luck
