Default Remote FTP

I too have a problem with remote ftp access from users.
using Fedora 4, I create the domain activate ftp and then add users.
I can use the browser ftp ( https://192.168.55.4:81/index.php?s=ae....etc ) but not cuteftp with the same credentials.

any ideas , ftp server is running according to the services menu

The WebFTP Interface uses the normal FTP commands, so i assume thet FTP
is working generally. Maybe the problem is your firewall configuration?

I dont think its firewall as I'm on the local network behind the router,
I also have maped to the server through my own host file to by pass any dns.
Also Cuteftp does connect to the ftp server as I get the connection message, the problem is that it wont accept any user logging in

ftp access is enabled for the user (i presume this is working as i can use the ispconfig interface through the browser)

The reason I would like ftp to work through a client is that I have not found a way to transfer multiply files with the web browser method,
I did find a work around by installing MC and using the shell connect (f9) to access the old server to transfer the web pages across but I dont want to give users shell access.

just another thing maybe a wee bit off topic but where is phpmyadmin located/installed by default, I cant find it and installed the standard one in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/phpMYAdmin
but again there is the problem of getting it intregrated into the admin facilities of ispconfig or setting up individual users manuall to be able to manage their dbases. - sorry if its a bit longwinded its the first time I do server like this normally used distros like clarkconnect.

(edit) firewall off on machine

I get this in logs :-
proftpd:
Unknown Entries:
session opened for user web1_nsworld by (uid=0): 16 Time(s)
session opened for user web1_kelljes by (uid=0): 5 Time(s)
authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost=127.0.0.1
user=web1_nsworld: 2 Time(s) if it sheds any light !

Can you enable "Passive Transfers" in your FTP client and try again?

You have to go to Management -> Update Manager -> Update and install the phpmyadmin pkg package from www.ispconfig.org. Afterwards, you have a link to phpmyadmin under Tools. The directory where it's installed is /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/phpmyadmin.

Maybe your FTP server listens only on 127.0.0.1? Can you post the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
here?

I've have the same problem with a mahine running under FC 4 installed in the standard fashion (not the Perfect Setup). I can, however, test the access to my ftp server successfully through the Netmonitor site (http://www.netmonitor.org/). I can't see any directory or file myself so I don't know how good the connection was.

It appears that I can connect to my server only through the local IP, not external IP or the external host name. Can someone test my theory by connecting to my server (ftp.yoons.org) with a login name of "tester, 1234abcd"? Please let me know what happend?

It's working for me, I could log in. Maybe it'S a firewall issue with your client PC.

You were able to log in and gain access to the files, were you not? I get the same problem with a client running under FC 4 and WindowsXP. The firewall built into the DSL router may cause my problem.

Thank you.
