Hi,
I have an vmware esx server 2.5.5 running, i was connecting to ftp on this server before without issues, curently i am trying to ftp some files but when i try to ftp to this server i get connected message But No login prompt appears & after sometime FTP times out.

FTP daemon is running & I am able to telnet IP Port 21 successful. When i try on the server using loopback itself it does not give login prompt. I did restart of service & even restarted the server but still unable to connect through ftp.

[root@cscgsxovr08 etc]# rpm -qa |grep ftp
ncftp-3.0.3-6
ftp-0.17-12.1.1
wu-ftpd-2.6.1-24

Hi,
this could be a problem of inconsistencies between the reverse/forward lookups your ftpd wrapper does.
Check if your DNS lookups are consistent in both ways.
You can also try to have all your concerned IP adresses and hostnames temporarily in the /etc/hosts for testing.

The issue was due to resolv.conf with old dns ips resolved.

So it's been a DNS problem, as I wrote!

Since there is no feedback from you, NeelSeshan, on my last post, I'm going to object against your closing request.
Reason:
I suggested to examine DNS as the possible cause of your problem and , as it turned out, I was right.

yes it was due to old dns servers entry on resolv.conf
