Problems with FTP and AIX 4.3.3
Posted on 2007-10-12
We have a home brewed program that opens an ftp session into an AIX 4.3.3 box and uploads some files into an specified directory user : ch13ftp (/home/public/cimprt ) The programs was working fine until recently, we had an IT audit and the folks runnig the audit ran Nessus scan; somehow we had to reboot the AIX box, the only thing that is not working is the ftp portion of the program, we get an error saying not connected. SO I know the problem has to do with the ftp portion of it. NOw I have check the inetd, the hosts files and everything else I can think of (I am not an Unix expert, nor pretend to be). THe name of my WIndows machine, the one running the program has not changed, the Unix box appears to be running the FTP deamon, as a matter of fact, sometimes the program appears to connect and uploads to files, other times it completely refuses to connect. ANy ideas?
