I have a system running SuSE 8.0, KDE and I am having trouble getting ftp and telnet to work.
When connecting to either service, telnet hostname or ftp hostname both reply with similar comments:
c:\> telnet hostname
Connection to host lost
c:\> ftp hostname
=Connected to hostname...
Connection closed by remote host
- I've run a netstat and services are listenting on the correct ports.
- sftp authenticates and functions properly, but ftp is what I want to work
- /etc/ftpusers file has root commented out.
- /etc/securetty has pts/0 -- pts/9 entries. These entries allow root access on other systems.
I'm running out of ideas. How do I check to see if a firewall is running? If one is not running, what should I try to do?
