Red Hat / Fedora :: Login Incorrect And Unable To Connect In Vsftpd
Apr 15, 2009
When ever i try to login to my ftp server(linux, fedora) through filezilla or cuteftp then its giving error even if login details are correct. Its are working fine locally but remotelly its giving error when ever i try to connect to it using external ipaddres or domainname. the error is as follows Status:
Connected with [URL]. Waiting for welcome message...
Status:Connecting to host1.domain.com ...
Response:220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5)
But if i try to connect to ftp server via brower(internet explorer or mozilla). ITs working fine.I dont know what is the reson behind this. few days back it was working fine through filezilla or cuteftp. proxy setting are also fine. its the same which i was using few days back.
I am getting "530 Login incorrect" error message when trying to connect vsftpd server through ftp.
I have vsftp executable and configuration file recieved from windriver. earlier i was not able to run this executable, but after few changes in vsftpd.conf now i am able to run vsftpd server. But when I try to connect to this server from another system I am getting above error.
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 have installed vsftpd by "yum -y install vsftpd",disabled anonymous login and set .When I use a linux client's file browser to login using a user account "ftpacc" by ftp://ip_address, its location is "/" instead of /home/ftpacc".When I use a window client to login, its location is "/home/ftpacc"
I set up a ftp server using VSFTPd. Remote connections are working fine. I can connect then create, rename and delete folders. I can upload files without any issue. BUT, each time i connect directly from the server (with the command "ftp localhost") i can't upload files either delete them. The only thing i can do is create folders. I'm getting error code "553: could not create file" when trying upload files. I triple checked the rights, everything is OK. I disabled SELinux (even if i don't like it). The weirdest thing is everything's working fine from remote host.
I'm rather new to Fedora server, but I'm attempting to run a music FTP server, where anonymous users can submit songs into one particular folder (so i can personally tag them), while other user accounts have full read-write. Here we go: I 2 directories, /music and /untagged
I want anonymous users to be able to read both directories, but only be able to upload to /untagged, and not be able to delete anything. I want users that I select to have full read-write-create-delete privileges. how would I go about this with vsftpd?
I try to setup a small Debian system running on command line. Remote access shall be possible via ssh (for now also telnet) and a serial connected minicom via getty. I need the serial access as fallback in case the network is down.
As long as the package adduser is not installed, I can login as root via telnet and getty without problem. But from the moment "adduser" is installed with apt-get, the serial root login always fails after entering the right password with the message "Login incorrect". Even de-installing "adduser", or using a brand new "adduser test" user. When installing and using SSH it allows to login successfully, like telnet.
BTW: A dangerous behavior I observed with telnet: When I opening the connection via telnet, I'm immediately logged in as root - without asking for a password! I set a password with passwd which also is requested by SSH and getty (before the adduser installation) but not by telnet?!?!?
The /var/log/messages adds a line if login with su, but nothing when fails with getty
I just installed Ubuntu Server 10.4.2 LTS (32-bit) on Virtualbox 4.0.6 The install went great everything seemed to work. But after it rebooted for the first time when install completed, it is prompting me for a username and password. Note, the only username and password i was prompted to set up was for non-admin stuff. So i tried this username and password i created during install, but it keeps saying 'login incorrect'. I have looked at other threads, although they are mostly for older Ubuntu Server versions, but i couldnt really find anything. I tried to reinstall and go through the install slowly but still the same issue. i tried Ubuntu for username and no password, tried leaving username and password blank, tried root and the password i created... i tried everything I could think of...
I cant figure out why my server running fc14 keeps saying login incorrect 530. I am using gproftpd. I know that the login is correct though. For instance: Lets say my user is "goober" and my pass is "fedora" and I go and type that in when I try and login to the ftp it says login incorrect.
I've never observed this problem neither did any of my colleagues trying to SSH into the same system. If I try logging into my server using a wrong username and then press ^C to terminate or exhaust my password attempts, I am locked out for at least an hour. Is there something I can do on my end to fix this problem?
One of my servers is displaying the error as login incorrect even after giving the correct password. Once I restarted the Virtual Machine and after that it is accepting the same password to login. I am not able to find out the problem, why the server is not able to validate the password until the virtual machine gets rebooted.
I'm trying to set up ftp server in the most simple way possible - login to home directories for existing linux users (except root). I get "Login incorrect" when I try to authenticate, although I am sure it is the right user-password (I even changed it using passwd on server's shell and tried again with the new one). The funny thing is even if I purge the proftpd package and install vsftpd instead - it doesn't help - I can't log in. But I can log in with ssh.
I install and configure the vncserver following and reading 1000papers, but all of this present the same problem; when i try to connect to my vncserver,recive this mesage: unable connect to socket: No route to host (113) The OS version is Fedora Core 14 and tigervnc-server i try different solutions including:Allow TCP connection modifing files /etc/gdm/custom.conf and /usr/share/gdm/gdm.chemas Disable SELinux removing iptables Here follow the vncserver configuration:
The ip address of the vncserver is correct because i can do ssh on it. Where or what can i do?
I m trying to use VSFTPD, but it is failed to login of local users, i did tried to login on localhost, it become login successfully on localhost, but taking much delay to login. and login become fail from remote computer. this is text of "vsftpd.conf"
I have installed vsftpd and I configured the whole package and everything worked. But, after a reboot, it doesn't work anymore. Vsftpd is running. When I do "telnet localhost 21" the machine gets connected to localhost. It also succeeds when I type "192.168.2.10" (my internet IP address) or "22.214.171.124" (external IP address). So the connection is fine. I configured vsftpd to allow only given users, in this case the user bourne. Everyone else isn't allowed to use vsftpd. My main account is stan. So when I connect to the machine via SSH, I'm logged in as 'stan'. When I try to log in to the FTP server with "ftp localhost" and I fill my own username I get an error message saying permission is denied, I don't get a chance to enter my password. When I fill in the username 'bourne' it asks for a password, I enter it, and I get the message 'login incorrect'.
But now it's getting weird: When I switch to the user bourne in the shell by 'su bourne' and enter the same password for FTP, I get logged in as bourne. Then, when I enter 'ftp localhost', fill in the username 'bourne', enter its password, the login is succesfull! It doesn't matter where I connect to (local IP, external IP, localhost, or computer name) I get connected with the user bourne as long as I'm logged in to the shell with this user. Otherwise it doesn't work. Does anyone know why? Below is the config file of vsftpd:
I use vsftpd, i disabled anonymous users. sometimes i look at the log-files. and there are much entries from bots. they try to connect to the ftp with users like apache or tomcat. they try it 10, 20, 30 or more times. can i block them with vsftpd after 5 failed logins for 1 hour or something like this?
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
Today I have installed Linux SUSE 11.2 . At installation, I was asked for user-name and password. I edit this correctly.
At the end of the installation, the system reboots until the mask 'user name' and 'password' will be displayed. When I edit my user-name and the password the system said, that the login is not correct.
First, I think, I have forgetten my password an do a new installation of Linus SUSE 11.2 . Whatever, the same problem ist still there.
I have just bought a PC with SUSE 10.1-0. The first time I started the PC an installation menu appeared. I didn't define a user name, thinking that it should log in automatically (as in Windows occurs), but now I can't go farther from the Welcome screen, due to the system is asking me de user and password, but I didn't introduce nothing! Leaving username and password in blank didn't solve the matter.
I can see the admin screen (pressing F10) but I am not able to find any user to log (logically) and I can't include new users from there.
I have also tried to install Windows XP modifying the BIOS but the system returns a message (once in the WinXP installation program) about an error called 4096, about the file i386halaacpi.dll, which is unable to find (something about the HAL), so I am afraid that my (new) RAM memory is damaged.
What could I do? The system is for an old person, so I would like to install finally WinXP and delete Suse.
I'm running vsftpd-2.2.2 on Slackware 13.1 and I'm behind a NAT with a dynamic IP. I'm using pasv_address, which makes it necessary to have a crontab that checks whether my IP has changed, and if it has, edits the conf and restarts vsfptd. It's hackish but it works. I have also enabled FTPES on the same port that normal FTP runs. I have allowed only the 5001:5003 ports and I am aware that the recommented is 50 ports. However I never had an issue with the transfers since I'm the only user and have at maximum two simultaneous transfers.
I can connect remotely with FTP and FTPES with every client I tried but I'm having issues locally. FileZilla refuses to connect on FTP and FTPES. WinSCP can connect on FTP but not FTPES. Issues are gone if I enable pasv_promiscuous, which the manpage strongly recommends not to use unless "you know what you're doing". I don't. Why is this happening? And, can I fix the local connections without resorting to pasv_promiscuous?
Here is my config and log files from a failed local attempt.
I'm using VSFTPD on my office LAN for one simple task: to receive-and send - installation images created with Ghost4Linux. Until recently, my main LAN server ran on CentOS, but I decided to migrate it to Slackware (nicer release policy ).
What I usually do is create an 'install' user who can login to FTP, but not on the system. Here's an example of what I used to do on my CentOS setup:
Then I only had to create the /etc/vsftpd/user_list file and put a single line in it to allow the newly created user:
install Now I've tried to get the same behaviour on Slackware, and I succeeded more or less, except for one thing. There's no way my 'install' user can login to FTP when his default shell is set to '/sbin/nologin' (or '/bin/false'). Only when I change the 'install' users' default shell to a "real" shell like '/bin/bash', he's able to login.
Here's a little practical demonstration of what's happening:
$ lftp localhost lftp localhost:~> user install Mot de passe :
I just made a Ubuntu Server install in a virtual machine and am having trouble setting up FTP to transfer files. I've installed LAMP and vsftp. The web server works great, but FTP gives a connection refused error locally and remotely from the host machine. 'Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".' nmap localhost doesn't list FTP as open even though I have vsftpd set to listen. I've tried restarting vsftpd with no luck.
I've setup vsftpd correctly and it's running fine with local users (in the same LAN). However, when remote users wanna login to the server, it takes more than 1 minute to get in. Users do can login from remote. It just took too long. (It prompted for the username and password very fast.) Since the server is behind a router, I did configure the port forwarding for TCP 20-21. The centos version is 5.3. The vsftpd is v2.0.5.
