Hi I newly installed oracle linux..
I dnt have internet..
My FTP is not working, m trying do ftp tp oracle linux but root ,password is not accepting.
Can u help me in enabling FTP services so that i can transfer packages to it
Your version of linux?
see if ftp and vsftpd is installed if its not installed install from your installation media and start vsftpd service
I have checked for oel 5 its there in installation media.
HI VSFTPD services are running...
Wen i do telnet 192.168.1.12 21
its displays error :- 500 OOPS vsftpd cannot locate user specified in 'chown_username' :whoever
All ftp services are running, m able to ping to 192.168.1.12 but stil from putty,or winscp..its not comnnecting
Winscp say:- Network error, Connection refused
You may need to check your firewall configuration, or turn it of using "service iptables stop". However, Telnet and FTP are legacy protocols used in the last century and obsolete. Unless you have a very specific need for FTP I suggest not to bother with it anymore.
Only ssh, tcp port 22, will be allowed to accept incoming connect by default. Apparently you have Putty (ssh client) and WinSCP, which supports SFTP and SCP. If you can use SSH to connect to your machine, SCP and SFTP will work too. If you cannot establish a SSH connection with your server, check your network routing and tcp/ip configuration on the client and server. If you run any kind of machine virtualization, check the virtual network adapter type.
Fire waal configuration is OFF/disabled
All my VSFTP services are working on seeing ps -ef|grep ftp---> /etc/vsftp.vsftpd.conf m seeing this //this show my vsftp is running
but still m not able top connect from putty or winscp
Are you confusing VSFTP with SFTP? VS-FTP has nothing do with SSH or SFTP and SCP.
Again, running your VSFTP or SSH daemon on your Linux server is only one part of the story. Can you connect to the machine itself, for instance:
# ssh root@localhost
# ftp localhost
If the above works on the machine itself, but not from your desktop client, then the issue is most likely your network configuration or internal or external (transparent) firewall configuration.
Did you perform a minimal install? I suggest you reinstall the system using the default software selection. Alternatively, configure yum to access the repository on the installation DVD according to the OS release notes and type "yum install openssh-server". Provided your TCP/IP network works, SSH will work too.
