FTP files from gentoox to PC

Post by ManReal » Tue Jan 09, 2007 11:40 pm

I've already installed Gentoox on my Xbox. The problem that I'm having is that I'm not able to access my xbox via ftp anymore .

When I first got gentoox installed I created a user acount with 'useradd' and 'passwd' and then I was able to login to ftp via that username and password (because logging in as root wouldn't work). So I was able to transfer file to gentoox with flash fxp on my PC.

Now I did something to my xbox (I believe it happened when I installed apache) and I can't get into ftp. I can however, log in to my xbox using (ssh) or secure shell (like telnet I guess).

So I tried...

unmerging apache on gentoox and merging again. it so happens that the ftp still doesn't work. Any ideas why I can't get this bloody ftp to work?

What do you guys need to see to help me out with this madness?

any help would be really appreciated.

For the record I'm using a static IP, (192.168.1.190). I've also searched the forums and didn't find any useful solutions, except to "check you '/etc/hosts' file. So here it is:
# /etc/hosts: This file describes a number of hostname-to-address
# mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem. It is mostly
# used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
# On small systems, this file can be used instead of a
# "named" name server. Just add the names, addresses
# and any aliases to this file...

Just a couple of ideas for you to look into!

Firstly in gentoox open up a terminal window and check your gentoox's networking by using the command ifconfig, check the ip address etc

restart the ftp server to make sure it is running fine

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/proftpd stop
sudo /etc/init.d/proftpd start
Now login to your webmin interface and check the users for the ftp server
(https://xbox_ip:10000)

also try logging in through a command prompt on your PC to see if it gets as far as asking for authentication

Code: Select all

ftp xbox_ip

Why you're not using samba to transfer your files ?
You can map the drives with this, would be easier.
