Cannot FTP to Linux Intranet server
Posted on 2002-03-06
I am a Netware/Windows admin who inherited a RedHat Linux Intranet server. I know nothing about Linux other than how to shutdown or reboot. The Intranet server works fine, serves up company policies, forms, etc. We have been using WS_FTP Pro to ftp forms and policies from the desktop, W98, to the Linux server with no problems. All of a sudden we cannot connect with WS_FTP. The web server is working, we can still access everything with a browser, but when I try to connect via FTP the connection tries until the timeout then I receive a "blocking call error". I have tried setting and unsetting passive mode and changing the timeout from min to max. Nothing else has changed on the Linux server, no one here knows Linux. I have reboot the server to no avail. Any ideas how to fix the blocking call error so we can update documents???
