FTP not working on RedHat server


Hi All,

This is my first thread on this forum, hope somebody can help me.
I'm not expert on redhat Linux a need your help to troubleshoot this issue.
A server is running a script (I don't know the name, because it is a new client) that uses FTP to send the contents of a directory to an internal FTP server. No files are being received on Server B.
both servers are running RH, how can I start working on this issue? and what I can look for in the output.

Thank you
Chech

What language or shell is the script? Are you using Perl? Is you are using bash change the script or start it by using "bash -x" where bash is the full pathname to bash, or perl, (e.g. /bin/bash -x <script_name>) and save the output so we can see what is going on. This may give a clue if the problem is with the script or some configuration issue. Use the same idea for a perl script. (e.g. /opt/local/bin/perl -x <script_name>).

You might also just try letting us know what the script is and replace any sensitive information with place holders. OR: try using rcp or scp instead of ftp.

The client told me it is a bash, but don't know the name. How can I see if there is a schedule job running with this bash and the logs to check if it is running properly?
thank you!

until you post any of the needed information
all we can say is
tell your client to read the manual

You are not giving enough information to help you. From what you say now you don't know when or where the script is run from. The script file must have a name. Someone, the author of the script perhaps, should know where the script is located and if it is run from crontab. These pieces of information are crucial to be able to help you. Once you know the script file name edit the file and if the first line of the file has "#!/bin/bash" or the like, then change that line to read "#!/bin/bash -x". This will permit the file to be executed and display diagnostic info which will tell you what is happening as the script executes. Good luck.
