FTP problem...

This is a really annoying problem with my FTP

When I try to connect to my FTP server on Red Hat 7.0 on my network using WS_FTP, I get the following message:

connecting to ...
Connected to port 21
! Receive error: Blocking call cancelled

! Connection failed

Here's the set up on the linux machine:
Installed Win2000 first (using half of the disk space), then Red Hat 7.0 as a server (web server and DNS nameserver) after that. I uninstalled apache, and reinstalled it configured for php3 and mysql. Also, I can connect to it through internet explorer (, but it takes a LOOOOONG time (just timed it--2 min 25 sec).

I think its taking so long to respond that WS_FTP thinks it froze or something....

Anyone have any idea how to fix it?



PS-Sorry if I'm doing something really stupid....I'm a very inexperienced linux newbie

FTP block error

You might wanna try to add to the file /etc/hosts.allow and add to the last line of it the word all. That might be part of your problem. The slow login might be due to some DNS lookup delay from your nameserver or it might be a RAM problem. Just a couple of thoughts.
