Well, you have to make sure that FTP is running on your box...then some version of ftp require that you put user names in files in your /etc directory in order to log in.

FTP is usually handled via xinetd on RH boxes.

Anyway, hope that's a start for you.

Before trying to FTP from other PC pn my LAN I have edited the following two file...

/etc/xinet.d/gssftp and /etc/xinet.d/tftp
and type disable=no.....But it was not working....

But after getting your post in..I have edited the two file again..

Anyway thanks for your co-operation.....
