I am attempting to connect to VSFTPD via Filezilla from a windows machine, but regardless of which user name I use I get a "530 Login incorrect" error. I have tried turning off the firewalls on both the CentOS and Windows side of things with no result. I disabled the SSL/TLS commands in the config file, also with no change. I tried a couple of different FTP clients, but got similar results regardless of which client I used. I have been going over man pages and documentation for a couple of days now, but cannot come up with an answer. I suspect it lies in my configuration, but I got the same results when I reverted my config file back to the original. what else I can do? One other note is that I am attempting to connect via a LAN, at this point I don't care if it works across the WAN as I only intend to use it to upload files to my web server.
I installed Fedora 12 a couple of days ago. This is my secondary operating system. The main one is Mint 8 and in order to have the same documents in both OSs I have a separate /home partition, but for some reason I don't see any of my Documents. In the installation I told fedora that I already had a /home partition and to use it. Also if I mount Mint's disk, while I can browse the folders, I can't see any document .
Finally I can access my Mint's home folder and files but since my username in fedora has a capital A it created another home folder. How can I change my home folder path so it point to the other home folder?
I recently installed vsftpd on my server. I noticed that users on the machine can login into vsftpd with their username and password on the machine and go to their root dir "/home/username".Now, I want to give some people a vsftpd username and password so they can upload and download files and folders to their folder, but this folder has to be in the "/var/www/(username)" folder. I don't want them to be able to go to any other folder than their own folder like "/var", "/etc" or "/home" etc. Also I don't want them to be able to login on the machine as a user, through putty for example. They should only be allowed to acces their folder with vsftpd, nothing else.
I've only recently encountered this problem with vsftpd when I was creating new ftp accounts. I keep on getting:
550 Access Denied.
on every action I try to do on ftp, no matter what. I've been trying to solve this myself however my attempts have been futile.
The permissions, and ownership have been checked and rechecked tens of times now, so thats not the issue. I've reinstalled the OS of my server twice now, and the problem is still persisting. Heres my config file, this isnt for anon by the way.
Code: # Example config file /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf # # The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file # loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable. # Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults. #
Trying to set up VSFTPD on the CentOS 5 box at work, which is an internal web development server. I'm leaving soon, and all knowledge of or desire to learn SSH is going with me so the other employees will need to be able to access the web root using FTP clients.
Essentially there is no need for special user accounts or privileges, it's an internal server in a tiny company. I've got the LocalRoot set to /var/www/ which I can log in to and read all files via FTP, however despite setting everything to 777 in /var/www/ and below, I still can't get any write privileges on the FTP server.
I have a local network that has three LANs and each LAN has several machines. I created a folder named myweb that contains html files under /var/www/html/. Let's say the folder is on A machine. From B machine, which is in different LANs, I want to access myweb folder using a web browser. I can ping both machines nut I can't access the folder. I tried [URL] where sxa.org is the hostname and the http server (Apache) name.
in a fresh CentOS server (64b), after setting up vsftpd server (like i did many times), when using ftp protocol, i can't see the content of the home ftp folder, afetr when using sftp then i can see them, to fix ftp issue i did stop iptables and the router config is fine, but the problem is still there.is there any other app that is preventing me from using ftp, this a fresh installation (knowing that i have another CentOS (32)) with vsftpd and working great?
I have many clients uploading to the same directory.
I have set chmod to 733 and chown to another user on the upload folder so that the different clients do not see each others files, but that also causes the client to not see their own files after they are uploaded or not being able to resume broken uploads.
I would like the different user log in with their own username and password but all upload to the same directory and not see each others files, but just their own. Is this possible? Or does anyone have a tip how to achieve something similar?
How can i create folders in linux? so far i have created the folders i need using mkdir /home/computer now what i need to do is create five more folders but each folder sill have their own username and password
So I'm trying to put together a birthday present for my girlfriend. Here's the background. She just got back from a semester abroad in Rome. She's having a hard time getting used to living in the states again, so I want to make her a photo album with all of her pictures from Italy and the rest of Europe. Its a surprise, so I can't just get them from her. I've got her Time Machine, which has all the photos on it (I'm 'debugging' it for her, she's not so tech savvy). I've found the pictures folder, but I don't have the permissions to access it.
So the question is, I have her username and password, what do I have to do in order to read the file with all the pictures in it? I'm not a crazy stalker, in case you were wondering, I just don't know how to change my username to one that have permissions for the folder.
I am new to ubuntu and just installed the vsftpd service by this tutorial: [URL]. Now my question is how can I give users rights to one specific folder? useradd username -d /home/folder/new Thats the command id used but when I login to the ftp the user is able to see all other folders as well ..
vsftpd is working fine in my network with anonymous user but i need to access that from out-side all the setting is done on the router. I am getting page to access ftp form out-side but only for ftp users not anonymous user how i will give permeation to access ftp to anonymous user ?
I'm working on sharing a user's home folder using the username and password of the user's lLnux account. I noticed that home folder sharing is quite easy as I just need to change the smb.conf file to enable it. However I can't seem to login anyway. It seems that Samba keeps its own records of username and passwords. Is there a way that I can map/sync the Linux users' usernames and passwords automatically to Samba? The end result should be that whenever I add a new user or a user changes his/her Linux login password,Samba automatically changes its password as well.
I have an external hard drive mounted at /media/exthdd/ On that hard drive I have folders: Music, Pictures, Videos, etc. Can I make symbolic links to /media/exthdd/Music/ to say the root directory /_ ? the directory /_ is empty I just want a quick method of typing to get me there much like [cd ~] gets me to my home/username folder. I have my music organized by Artist/Year-Album/Track.Title.mp3 I want to be able to "cd /_" then "ls" and see all Artist folders.
I am trying to install VSFTPD on my Fedora instance of Linux. I have a Wordpress blog that I want to access through FTP. I did an install on VSFTPD and am kind of stuck. I try to FTP into my IP through [URL]
I installed VSFTPD but when logging ( at command line or browser ) at any user always :
[root@srv vsftpd]# ftp 172.16.0.3 Connected to 172.16.0.3. 220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5) 530 Please login with USER and PASS. 530 Please login with USER and PASS. KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type Name (172.16.0.3:root): system
1- I've set up 3 virtual users,one of them is a system one (with a different password) and writes on his own home folder. With this one I haven't found any problems yet, but with the other 2 users I can't access files/folders created by them. It's a permissions problem for sure, but I'm not sure how to correct it.With these users I can upload files, create files and create folders. The problem is I can't access what I create (I can't enter a folder I created but it is there and I can upload files into it).
2- Whenever I turn on ssl_enable=YES I can't access the server (even from the server itself when I connect to localhost, It's a regular Ubuntu installation).Here's the config file for the users:
I'm using ubuntu server 9.10 for a home build NAS. Everything is working great just have one more thing to figure out. I have Samba set up to access my files and I set up a recycle feature so anything deleted will get moved to a Recycled folder. (I learned this the hard way after hitting delete key by accident while browsing the shares in windows. Lost 100 GB of data)
Now it is for the most part working but the permissions on folders isn't getting set right. If I delete a file in a share I can go to Recycle bin folder and delete the file for good. But if I delete a folder I can not access that folder to delete or restore from the Recycle bin folder. I have to chmod the folder before I can do anything with it. Anything I can change to get folders deleted via windows to have the right permissions when it is moved to the Recycle bin folder?
