FTP services


So, total noob, don't know what to look for here. I've got this server running SCO Unixware 2.1.3. Old as hell, I know, in well before my time at this company.

It is running the standard services, but ftp doesn't respond like it should. When through the command line ftp of another machine on the local subnet, I get this when sending 'ls', or 'dir':

200 PORT command successful.
550 /bin/ls: Resource temporarily unavailable.

I've edited ftpaccess and entered the usernames that need access, and I've removed usernames from ftpusers

This is the inetd.conf file:

Code:

I was running around the SCO Unixware desktop, and in my frustration I started clicking on /usr/sbin/in.ftpd

After that, I was able to pull the directory listing using the command line ftp, and actually get a folder view through redhat's nautilus filebrowser. Then it stopped working again.

So, in short, the FTP server is responding, allowing me login, but I can't get a listing of files.

Your company is using software that was central to the lawsuit which ruined SCO.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UnixWare

... sounds like it is way past upgrade time.

... for the mac, but it basically walks through troubleshooting the client.

Do other commands work?

Other commands report as succesful, say a cd command, but I can't verify, as I can't get a file list. I haven't tried a get yet, but I did get this poking at the server from a df -a

Code:
Filesystem kbytes used avail capacity Mounted on
/dev/root 1783215 1695367 87848 96% /
/dev/fd 0 0 0 0% /dev/fd
/proc 0 0 0 0% /proc
/dev/dsk/c0b0t0d0sa 16065 3760 12305 23% /stand
/processorfs 0 0 0 0% /system/processor
/dev/dsk/c0b0t0d0p2 1783215 1635391 147824 92% /usr/appls
/dev/dsk/c0b0t1d0s1 2097152 1728976 368176 83% /tax
/dev/dsk/c0b0t1d0s2 2091008 1479296 611712 72% /payroll
Could it be that the / mount is just hitting a resource wall?
