ftp not working on virtual machines.
I am a beginner to linux and have installes two virtual machines. I am trying to connect machine2 from my ftp server. when i do ftp from sever its saying connection refused.

And when i try it from machine2 to server its saying no route to host.

Pls tell me where I have mistaken.

Thanks in Advance

Clarity would help a bit here.

I am guessing you are trying to FTP from your virtual machines (I'll call em VMs to be quick) to a completely different server hosting an FTP Daemon? If their is a network connection between the two (testible by pinging one from the other or using tracert) then it would guess it would be a firewall issue or a closed port along the line. It would help if I could understand the situtation a little better. Can the FTP server be properly FTPed from other machines?

I have disabled iptables with "service iptables stop" on both the machines. I am able to ping both the machines each other. Instead of root now i am trying to login from other user and getting the following msgs:

1. From server " ftp
ftp:connect:connection refused

2. From 2nd machine "ftp
connected to
500 OOPS:vsftpd:cannot locate user specified in chown_username:whoever.

Pls suggest the resoltion.

go to ftp server itself do
# ftp localhost

if not work try restart the ftp daemon and check with netstat -tanp |grep 21
