Serv U FTP server not working
Posted on 2005-02-25
I'm running an FTP server on my XP Pro, SP2 box. It's been running fine for years but stopped accepting connections recently. The two things that changed were:
1. I installed XP SP2
2. I installed NAV 2005
I dont have SP2's FW enabled so that should eliminate SP2.
I've disabled NAV services and even uninstalled NAV 2005 completely but FTP still doesn't work.
I have a Linksys router acting as a FW and it allows port 21 through to my PC's internal IP.
When someone tries to connect, it doesn't seem to make it to the FTP software - the FTP server never shows anyone having attempted to connect so I suspect some software is blocking the activity.
I am able to FTP to the server using another PC within my network and from the FTP PC itself so FTP server software seems to be running ok.
I also ran Spyware to clean up & a/v scans. I am current on all Windows patches/hot fixes.
I've also installed Cerulean(?) FTP server software to test it...same results.
