Networking :: Active FTP Using Raw FTP Commands / Turn Off Passive Mode Using It?

Apr 1, 2009

Can anybody have an idea of an ftp client code using raw ftp commands.

Can anybody tell me how to turn off passive mode using raw ftp commands.
PASV is the command which turns on passive mode but there is no such alternative of active mode.
I have already tried using pasv_enable=NO in vsftpd.conf but that is not working.

Networking :: Pure-ftpd Passive Transfers Not Working?

Jun 4, 2010

I have a dns-323 linux device that's running pure-ftpd with SSL/TLS authentication. Pure-ftpd is sitting behind a linksys router with IP Pure-ftpd is configured for port 8021 and passive port range 55562-55663. The linksys router is configure to forward port 8021 and the passive port range to

From outside my network I can connect to the ftp server using the WAN address of the router. I'm using filezilla 2.2.32 as my client and I choose FTP w/ explicit TLS (no other option will connect). The client will authenticate successfully with pure-ftpd but once it sets up the passive data connection and tries to do a LIST of the root directory, there's a timeout. I'm assuming this is because the passive data connection is not working. In pure-ftpd, I tried changing the passive address that it reports, to be the WAN address of the router, but it did not make a difference. I included the log from filezilla below.

Hardware :: Get A 2nd Display For A PCMIG 1.0 Passive Backplane With An Advantech 6010 CPU?

May 2, 2011

Need to get a 2nd display for a PCMIG 1.0 passive backplane with an Advantech 6010 CPU [onboard video works fine], but NO PCI card will come up as the 2nd display! Tried 11 cards and most leave the cursor at the top corner when doing xorg-configure, but no that's all.

Has anyone gotten a 2nd display to work on a passive backplane system? Tried some newer cards, but they don't even allow the system to POST - perhaps because they are PCI 3.0 and the backplane is PCI 2.0 or 2.1?

Server :: Nagios Passive Or Remote-host-side Alert?

Jan 6, 2010

Is this possible that a process running on a remote-host only inform nagios when some thing is wrong. Rather then nagios-monitoring-server checking through NRPE every so often. Reason is I want to add too many alerts in the application. And I don't want a whole list of ok messages.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Rid Of Ndiswrapper Completely?

Sep 18, 2010

So after a quick look around the forums, I haven't seen anything on removing ndiswrapper. What I have done is removed ndiswrapper via synaptic. Now in order to start my wireless card I have to issue:

rmmod ndiswrapper
modprobe ath9k
ifconfig wlan0 up

Basically this is a pain. Does anyone know how to get rid of ndiswrapper completely and set things up to use ath9k automatically?

Ubuntu Networking :: Completely Borked After Reboot?

Sep 11, 2010

I made some updates and rebooted (out of necessity due to an old, mysterious glitch that made my keyboard stop working, along with cursors in text and most menus) and my laptop's networking stopped working altogether. Trying to access my home's wireless network only got me a "disconnected - you are now offline" after a long wait, which has happened before, but A) never before right after a reboot, B) the wired connection didn't work either when I tried it, which has never happened to me, and C) this persisted after another reboot.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Completely Remove Wicd

Oct 21, 2010

Before I changed the faulty wifi card I installed Wicd. Incidentally it didn't remove Network Manager, a bug that's reported in Launchpad. With the new wifi working well enough with Network Manager, I used Synaptic to remove Wicid, or so I thought.I happen to be checking .xsession-errors and there's an error reported about wicid tray desktop. I removed it and no more errors appear.

After looking for advice here and on the web I used apt-get remove and purge yet a file search of wicd still finds 25 entries, in /etc/, /usr/ and /var/.Some are archives and some are logs but some aren't, why are they still there and can I clean things up?

Fedora Networking :: Completely Unable To Access The Internet?

Jun 16, 2009

Fedora 11 is completely unable to access the internet for some reason, and after some troubleshooting, I've determined the problem to my Motorola 2210 DSL modem. I know my connection is working fine, as it works perfectly in both Vista and 7. I've tried things such as grep 'Ethernet' /var/log/dmesg, filling in the information into the network settings manually, to no avail.

Fedora Networking :: Web Pages Dont Load Completely ?

Dec 14, 2010

I am using BSNL WLL (Wireless Local Loop) on my Fedora system to connect to the internet My modem is Huawei ETS-1201, I use wvdial The problem is that, on every linux distribution I tried, Webpages dont load or load incompletely randomly This happens most during peak net traffic. I tried to edit the /etc/ppp/options file to set my MTU and MRU to 576

But, It does not seem to be working. There is no such problem on Windows and I can connect flawlessly I takes several retries to connect to a site. I sometimes become frustrated with this and switch to Windows But as you all know, Windows is not the right OS for people who want more from their computers.

Below my specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
WD 320GB 7200rpm HDD

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Completely Load Web Pages On Any Web Browsers?

Jun 22, 2010

I seem to have stumbled on a problem regarding internet connectivity. My web browser (Firefox or any other web browsers) can't completely load the desired webpages like or even as I read different blogs in this forum, I have convinced myself that there is an internet connection.= when I ping different websites, Iseem to get good responses from those sites. Only when I need to browse the webpage do get no results.= ifconfig seems to respond well enough.= even "route" shows the IP my router/gateway correctly. The problem , I think, lies on the proxy settings or the DSN.

Ubuntu Networking :: Realtek RTL8168b Really Slow And Sometimes Goes Down Completely

Aug 11, 2011

Exactly the same computer have no network issues at all, when on windows. It is a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64 bit desktop. I have installed the proprietary driver for my nvidia card.

My motherboard is Asus P8P67 rev 3.0 Using scp, I'm getting 100-500kb/sec, if I get a connection at all. I have tried 2 different switches (both working fine in windows, though). Network goes down completley every 2 min or so, and is gone for 30 sec.

Some output:

dmesg | grep eth0:

[ 1.265601] eth0: RTL8168b/8111b at 0xffffc90000676000, f4:6d:04:9c:7f:d6, XID 0c900800 IRQ 33

Networking :: Making A Home Router ?

Dec 20, 2010

After seeing a few articles on making a home router I thought "I'll have a go at that" as I've spare bits and bobs lying around. Now apart form some iffy wireless cards one major problem sprung to mind. Clearly there will be 2 NIC - 1 in and in my case one out. And that one has to be wireless. But I've yet to find a ready built one (is Smoothwall or the like) that will allow me to do this with a wireless network card in the machine.

Firstly is it doable as all the traffic in my house is wireless. Secondly are there any ready built distros that will handle it for me.

Networking :: Making A Serial Snooper With A Box?

Sep 10, 2010

I have some industrial equipment I'm trying to reverse-engineer. It communicates from the main CPU to a controller via a serial connection. I want to hook into the serial connection and dump everything doing down that line to log file so that I can stare at the messages and try to figure out the protocol.

I could just plug the serial cable into my computer but I need the messages to continue going to the controller or else the rest of the system will error. So basically I need to tap into it.

My first thought is to use a laptop with two USB-Serial adapters. I could use a perl script to open both serial connections as files and send everything that comes in the one serial connection right back out the other serial connection, but also dump it to a log file. Will this even work? I can see that it will introduce some latency but I don't think that will be critical.

Fedora Networking :: [ipv6] What Is Ubuntu Making Different?

some of you might have experienced the network speed problem that occurs when ipv6 is enabled. So have I. I know about the common workaround of disabling ipv6, but recently I tested the new ubuntu live system, and the problem was gone with ipv6 being enabled.

Now my question is: Do you know what ubuntu is making different? I haven't found an explanation. Is there a better workaround than blacklisting ipv6?
