Currently Being Moderated

I was trying import the templates files from Oracle LInux 6.2 OVM Manager , which i set up also as fTP server using vsftpd.
I am able to login to using the users ovm and root.

I have one (x64) System , ovmserver (3.11) and Oracle VM Manager 3.11 running on top of 6.2 Oracle linux. ( x64)

I placed the templates in OVM Manager .

Am using this string.

It look like an error from OVM server. Or is it an FTP server error.
Any problems reported using vsftp server ?
