AIX 5.1 FTP stopped working! Waiting for welcome message
Posted on 2011-03-14
Today randomly can not access FTP. I can telnet to server fine, but not FTP.
I tried stopping and starting the ftp subserver, but no luck.
If I telnet to AIX, then FTP to itself, it works fine. But when I FTP from windows, I never get the welcome message.
Only thing different today, is that our domain/exchange server, is down due to the fact we are migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008.
I dont understand at all, how this could effect FTP from windows computers to the AIX, but it is the only different thing going on right now.
