FTP Novell Server from QNX box

I'm trying to ftp a file to a Novell server over a standard network connection.  I can ping the server, but ftp gives me a "connection refused".  What, if anything, should I have installed or enabled in Novell 4.x to allow ftp connections?  Is there a different syntax for ftp'ing to a Novell server than to a UNIX server?  

Thanks much,

Michael M Murphree

It sounds like the FTP server component is not installed on the NetWare server.  If FTP was installed and you attempted to connect with an invalid user/password, you would get a login failed error rather than connection refused.

If you have IntraNetWare, the FTP server is on one of the CDs, otherwise you need to purchase the NFS Services product.

Assuming the server has a bindery context(s) set, the syntax for the userid is the users common name eg. JSmith, if JSmith exists in the bindery context.  If the server does not have a bindery context or user does not exist in it then the user has to use their fully distinguished name, eg .JSmith.MIS.NYC.ACME
