Question Browsing a Simple LAN?


hi,

I have set up a small network between to Linux Red Hat 9.0 PC's using a crossover cable. One PC has all the servers I require installed (SQL, Web..) and the other acts as the client. I can ping both PCs and they see each other. I can connect to each PC using ssh, no problem. What I want to do is to be able to access or mount the file system on the client PC but every time I try to access via FTP or my Web Browser I get the message "Connection Refused.". I have disabled the firewall and still have no luck?? Am I missing something on the client side?? HELP!



Thanks in advance

Steve

By default, ftp and telnet are disabled these
days (they both use unencrypted authentication).

As for mounting filesystems I'd suggest having
a read-up on NFS ...

Check
/etc/xinetd.d/ftp
/etc/xinetd.d/telnet

Cheers,
Tink

hi,

I have installed NFS services on both the server and client, and I can get the ftp> prompt on both two. I just can't connect, I get "connection refused". Problem is that I don't know what to install on the client machine? Do I have to install the Network Server package on all clients to get file transfer and network mounting to work??

Thanks
Steve

stedo,

What Tinkster is trying to tell you is that to check whether the FTP service is running on your server.

Your clients obviously have the ftp client application installed and you don't need to bother too much with them for now.

hi,

I have the FTP server installed on the server machine and the service 'vsftpd' is up and running. However when I try to connect to my client I get the following:

ftp> open lapclient
ftp: connect: Connection refused

I have only the standard packages installed on the client, am I missing something on the client??

Thanks
Steve

Small steps forward, now I can connect to the server from the client using FTP but I can't connect from to the client from the server.??

Thanks

hi,

Installed the ftp server and telnet packages on the client and I can now see both machines via telnet and ftp.

Thanks for the help.
Steve
