View Full Version : FTP Problems with a Linux Server

11-22-2002, 02:45 PM
I just set up a Linux Server (Red Hat 7.2) with Apache and PHP. I am trying to FTP to it from my PC as a test and I am getting the message:
Socket Connection refused by server.

Is there a setting on the Linux server that I need to change to allow me to do this. I am using the correct login (root) and password. Is it that I cannot login as root? Thank you for any help you can give me.

Did you start the FTP server on Linux?

Good Question. Probably not. I will check. (As you can tell I am new at this stuff).

Ok let me ask this. From my PC dos prompt I can ftp to a Unix maching by typing this: ftp (IP addr) and it will allow me to log in and access files. This unix maching does not have an FTP server running. Why would I need one to access my Linux box? Maybe a stupid question, but again I am new at this. Is it possible that there is a setting that needs to be modified to allow some one to FTP to the box? Also I can FTP from the Linux box to the Unix box without trouble, but can not FTP from the Unix box to the Linux box without getting the refusal message.
