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
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'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.
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 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 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 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?
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) Command:USER test
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'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 open "man vsftpd.conf", it says syslog_enable If enabled, then any log output which would have gone o /var/log/vsftpd.log goes to the system log instead. Logging is done under the FTPD facility. Default: NO So I add "syslog_enable=YES" to the /etc/vsftpd.conf, and add "ftpd.* /var/log/ftplog" into /etc/syslog.conf. But there is no log infomation in the ftplog file.
I'm still learning my way around CentOS and linux in general... Using CentOS 5.4
BUT, I used the scripts from HowTo/Chroot Vsftpd and it did not work with the non-TLS script config, but the with TSL worked great. I wasn't sure where to put the vsftpd_virtualuser_config.tpl file but I copied it over when the script failed to find it... to where it was looking.
So I think it's working but my question is, TLS doesn't use port 21 but the script defaults to that port. I'm using FileZilla from an XP machine at work and I'm forwarding all the ports given in the HowTo. So I'm forcing the client to use TLS on port 21 but it hangs on the connection. If I use non TLS I get in but it tells me it requires TSL. I've had no luck with vsftpd in the past and this is my next attempt.
I recently got a hosted CentOS 5.5 box at a server farm to run a small ftp server for me.
They preloaded the image and installed a .86_64 build of 5.5, and I've only been familiar with i386.
I didn't think there'd be much of an issue from this, but I've gone thru all the normal steps to install and configure VSFTPD, however nothing is working.
I'm running CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
and I've gotten VSFTPD build 2.0.5 release 16.e15_5.1 installed from both yum and rpm (at separate times) and I've also tried grabbing the tar ball of 2.3.2 and 2.3.4, but run into dependency issues when compiling the code using GCC (it wasnt installed the first time).
i've started and made vsftpd persistent using service vsftpd start, chkconfig vsftpd on, and i restart the service after any changes to the conf file.
I'm trying to run the following settings. in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
# 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.
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. #
I already have this setup working in a debian server but I would like to setup the same in CentOS 5.3. I just copied all the configuration files to the CentOS server but I'm getting the following errors in messages:
vsftpd: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 64 seconds)... vsftpd: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 64 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 4 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 8 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 16 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 32 seconds)...
I set up my vsftpd server, but when using "sftp servername" it's not using vsftpd but another (what seems like) built-in sftp server. Even when I stop the vsftpd service I am still able to get a prompt to log in. I haven't installed any other ftp servers.
I'm new to Linux so I'm unsure how to resolve this. I'm trying to install vsftpd in order to make our CentOS box an FTP server for backups. But I keep running into this problem when doing the "yum install vsftpd"
I'm able to connect to ftp as a virtual user. It was also difficult as nowhere mentioned, that it should be done with SSL. Anyway I found the answer and got connection. But now I can't connect to ftp server as system user. It gives me "530 Permission denied", or if I delete the user from the file denied_users, - "530 Login incorrect".
1. Still I can't understand, how I can log in to FTP server with a system user.Also some other questions regarding this matter:
2. My httpd server Apache has a virtual hosts located in "/home" directory.The scripts create users in "/var/ftp virtual_users". Will it cause any problem if I will change them to "/home"? All I need to do with this is ability to have several virtual hosts in one server with separate access to each of them via FTP. And 1 account with access to all files in "/home".
3. In my ftp client I can see the owner of virtual host "ftp" instead of username.
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.
