Hi,

I have a LAN network with :-
-- one Cisco5505 switch
-- one PC running Redhat 7.1 as server (10.1.1.20)
-- four PC running Windows NT 4.0 (10.1.1.11 to 10.1.1.14)

I have configured then linux (just know a little) using kwuftpd. IP = 10.1.1.20

Now I try to login from one of the PC (say,10.1.1.12)

ftp> open 10.1.1.20
Connected to 10.1.1.20.
220 owen1.icel.com FTP server <Versionwu-2.6.1-16> ready.
User <10.1.1.20<none>>: shchong2
331 Password required for shchong2.
Password: ******
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.

(p/s : I have an account as "shchong2" in the Linux redhat)

Pls kindly tell me what is wrong with my configuration ?
What do I need to change ?
Anything important that I've missed out ?

Thankx for your kindness
:)

ftp> open 10.1.1.20
Connected to 10.1.1.20.
220 owen1.icel.com FTP server <Versionwu-2.6.1-16> ready.
User <10.1.1.20<none>>: ftp

i had the same problem,
i had redhat 7
i even couldnt find ftp daemon listed in the "ntsysv"
tht means ( i guess, i am not pro at linux) the server was not installed.
i then put in my cd and installed wu-ftp*.rpm manually, copied the sample comfiguration files to the etc dircetory (from the /usr/share/doc/wu*/examples) and started the sevice, now the ftp is working. you have to modifyu the ftpusers files and remove names of the user which you WANT to GIVE access though
