Question xinetd on mandrake 8.2 not working?!


hi,

i have installed mandrake 8.2 on my system but i cannt get ftp
to work

i have looked around in the config and found that ftp runs through the xinetd
( am i right? )

any who when it it run and you try and connect to the ftp server the syslog says bind: unable to bind to address 0.0.0.0

and then the client says connection closed by server

is it the way it is configured or is there a bug or something here and is there a fix?

if its the way its configured has any one set it up correctly and had it working?
and could they post a copy of their config here


thanks
ant

In /etc/xinetd.d/*ftpd file make these changes.
disable=no
bind=your_ip
Think that should do.

thanks but

hi,


thanks for that but i do not have any files in that directory that end with ftpd

the only file that i have is proftpd-xinetd

and in that file it does not mention any of the setting that you have put in you message
i put the stuff in exatly as you said and when the disabled=no is in the file it actually switches the service off anyway

and it seem that the bind thing has not worked

syslog displays these messages:

START: ftp pid= 2374 from=silver
libwrap refused connection to ftp from silver
FAIL: libwrap from=silver
EXIT: ftp pid= 2374 from silver




plus i have tryed using the swat service and all
it does is give me a file to download
and the text in the file is just garbled ( like if you edit an executeable file )

i have found that i can run proftpd manually by typing proftpd -c /etc/proftpd.conf
and t starts and seems to work


any ideas?


thanks
ant

Sorry, I assumed wu-ftpd. Anyway I just decided to try proftpd since so many ppl were talking about it.
I just downloaded the rpm, installed and it, made the above changes in /etc/xinetd.d/proftpd and tried. But could not login. ( Got a connection closed message ).
Did a little bit of work and found /etc/proftpd.conf should have something like
ServerType inetd
insted of default type standalone.
After fixing this I could login.
I am not sure about any other feature of proftp. Try this and if it works fine!.

PS: It is disable=no NOT disabled.
