Ubuntu Networking :: Lftp: Cannot Connect To FTPES Server

May 27, 2011

My host has enabled FTPES [URL]. I would like to use lftp to securely upload my files to the host. However, lfpt hangs at "`ls' at 0 [Connecting...]" when trying to connect. See report here: [URL]

I've already search this forum and the web for days, but there does not seem to be any explicit tutorial for lftp + FTPES.

I've tested filezilla and I can connect without any problems via FTPES. I'd rather use a command line tool like lftp, however.

From what I've gathered, the problem may be with the passive mode, and the fact that the response from the server does not reach my machine.

My machine is running Kubuntu and is behind a d-link router. I don't seem to be running any firewall (is that a problem for a personal computer?). I checked: the router's built-in firewall is disabled. I am not sure about the port forwarding issues, though.

I'd like to use your replies to write a small tutorial: I have found many posts by people experiencing similar problems, but none with an actual answer.

Another question: how can I make sure that any successful connection is indeed made via a secure channel. I can use lftp without problems when I don't use SSH/secure channels. Obviously, I don't want that. What tell-tale signs can I look to to ascertain that I am really securely connected?

Server :: LFTP Can't Connect To Proftpd Server (hangs)

Nov 28, 2010

I'm using ProFTPd as my FTP server on a CentOS 5 box. Since updating to version 1.3.3c, I seem to have very specific problems. Connections work quite fine with about any FTP client out there, including the basic ftp command from the Linux prompt. However, when trying to connect to that server with LFTP, things go wrong. When connecting, all I get is [Connecting] then [Logging in...] and then nothing. I have to add that SSL is forced off in lftp.conf (I read it could be the problem). I sometimes get a counter for reconnection, but it never works.

The command I use in lftp is : open -u <user>,<pass> <server_ip>, the ls for lftp to establish the connection. I don't see anything at all in the server's log. I just see "FTP session opened" and "FTP session closed" in /var/log/messages" and nothing in /var/log/secure. I can give you a strace if needed. Please keep in mind that the server WORKS with anything but LFTP and NCFTP (which I also tried).

I was recently assigned to enchance a ftp-server with SSL/TLS support. When I started investigating I found out that the server is a virtual (openvz) ubuntu machine with vsftpd. Enabling ftps was easy enough, I just added the following lines to /etc/vsftpd.conf

General :: Scripted LFTP With Watchdir

Jun 1, 2011

Really new to linux but I'm learning quite a bit and fairly fast. This is my first question on these forums and I hope I can get pointed in the right direction.Currently I run ubuntu 10 and currently I connect to my box via putty, and manually get files from 1 central ftp and then I take the files there and manually connect to 5 different ftps and send them out. I'm looking to figure out a solution where I can just dump the files into a particular directory on my box like a rtorrent watchdir and a script will pickup the new file and ftp it to all the places I need it to go.

I want the script to run in the background and just know a new file hit the directory and take care of it. To save time currently I'm using lftp and i have bookmarks saved with pw for all the ftps.

Ubuntu Networking :: Error - Cannot Connect To Server - You Must Enter A Name For The Server

Apr 17, 2011

In Gnome Places->Connect To Server dialog, I am having problem using the Custom Location Service Type. I enter in the URI as



I get an pop up error message that says:


Cannot Connect To Server. You must enter a name for the server.

Which would be fine if there was actually a place for me to enter the name which there is not. What am I doing wrong. This is the first time I have tried using the Connect To Server dialog. Normally I just use a script I wrote to mount my share in a folder on my local drive as some programs cannot access the mounted network folder. In a browser all I have to do is:



I tried using Windows Shares, but that did not work either. It does work if I click on network and access the share that way, but some programs like firefox and a few others that I want to save a file to my network drive do not show the network unless the share is mounted in a folder. So, I wrote a script:


#mount ext storage drive
mount -t cifs // -o username="username",password="password" /mnt/files

This works and I can use this, but it would be handy if I could just use the Connect To Server dialog.

Software :: How To Set Lftp To Download Files In Specific Order?

Jan 18, 2010

I have the following option set in my ~/.lftp/rc
set mirror:order "*.rpm */"
Here, *.rpm files are given preference. The rest of the files are being downloaded by lftp in alphabetical order, not the custom order sent by my ftp server. Is there a way to make it download it in the order sent by my ftp server.I'm using proftpd and the files are sorted by size.

Red Hat / Fedora :: LFTP From Linux To Mainframe (Data Contains Accent Characters)

Jun 9, 2010

I was wondering if someone can help me... I have a file that I am trying to LFTP from my Linux server to my Mainframe and the file is uploading but the data looks slightly corrupted..First off let me tell you the following text is French and it contains accent characters.Below is how the data looks when you view the data through vi or on the Mainframe:

Note how the accent e is turned into a uppercase accent A and a copyright symbol.When I view the PC file in hex through Notepad ++ the turns into and the result is one character turning into two characters is a hex C3 and is a hex A9.

When I LFTP the file to the mainframe the characters are transferred and I end up with a hex 66 and a hex E4.The end result I am after is that I want to transfer my linux file, who's data looks like this on the linux server: factureNumro and like this when viewed on a PC: factureNumro to my mainframe and I want it to look the same as when I transfer it to the PC. Like this: factureNum.

Ubuntu Networking :: Server 9.10 Won't Connect Any More

Mar 22, 2010

I set up 9.10 as a file server at my house, connected through the router via LAN. I had everything working, using it as a Samba file server. I moved to to my college apartment and I am now having troubles... I changed the network information in /etc/networking/interfaces to what it should be (or at least I thought so...)

I can ping myself, but nothing else. Also, on my router configuration page, the server is coming up as a connected device with the correct IP address that I set it to.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To NX Server

Oct 19, 2010

I just loaded NX Server, following the instructions from NoMachine. When I try to login from a client I get "Authentication Failed for User My Username" I can use the same client to connect to another NX Server on my network so I know the client works. I'm not clear if I need to set up a user, or if I can just logging with the username & password from the host (which is what I'm trying).

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Ssh Server From Outside The LAN?

I just setup sshd server on my ubuntu server 10.10 today. I then tried to connect to it with putty on my windows laptop outside the lan but failed. I entered the ip address as my wan ip address and the port as 23 (same port on the ssh server. I also have port forwarding enabled. The connection timed out every time.There are a lot of guides about ssh reverse tunneling but none works.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Server Over WAN

Apr 25, 2011

Ok this may seem like a "USE SEARCH FUNCTION" Topic at first, but trust me i have.

So my problem is the following:

I installed Ubuntu Sever 10.10 on a old PC of mine and installed all the required stuff for a webserver (apache, sql, php, ftp, ssh, etc)

Our network system is one of these stupid kinds, it's a brigded connection to the ISP so every computer on our LAN gets its IP directly from the ISP and there is no local IP addresses (port forwarding isn't needed)

This might be relevant but our LAN is build as follows.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< -----------Switch with WLAN ------- My laptop (WLAN)
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< |
Modem/router --------------
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< |<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<---- Windows 7 PC
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< -------------- Switch ----- |
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< |<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< --- Ubuntu Server
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< 2 other PCs

My Windows 7 PC can at all times connect to the server over ssh, ftp and http, no problems. But my laptop, and my friend from his place can only connect to the server if I have recently connected with the Windows 7 PC.

If there is no connection for a while and i try to connect with laptop or from friends place the connection just times out...

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Server Time Out Bug

Apr 16, 2010

I have a 64 bit machine that once makes a connection to a remote server, times out unless I am persistently doing some stuff on the computer. I have tried searching for a solution and have not found it yet I know it is a bug that other people have mentioned it at other places. This was not the case in previous versions of Ubuntu ( I am using 9.10). Having a persistent connection to remote server is something that is critical for my needs.

Ubuntu Networking :: 'Connect To Server' Through Proxy?

Aug 4, 2010

Is there a way to connect to a samba share on the other side of a dynamic ssh tunnel?I like to use ssh -D 8080 <host> to access the network on the other side of a ssh session. For applications with their own proxy settings it seem to work really nice.In this particular case I'd like to use the 'Connect to server' feature in Ubuntu to connect a samba share through the tunnel, but I can't figure out how to make only that connecton use proxy settings.If I enforce system wide proxy settings the ssh tunnel will die, so that is not an option.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To MySQL On Server

My problem is that for some reason I can't connect to my MySQL on my server.I know it's not the script, other than the information that I'm using to connect.The MySQL server is set to "localhost" so I set the host in my php script to "localhost".I check for the username and they say I should try "root" so I set the username to "root".Then I put in my root password.When I go to where my php script actually starts, it gives me the error saying that I cannot connect. I know the rest of the script works and the error refers to the info I'm using to go in

Is there any log file, or is it possible to connect to a VPN server from the terminal?

My question is how do I retrieve files form my work machine to the home machine. How do I sync folders between the machines using rsync when the "tunnel server" is in between?

Ubuntu Networking :: Use A Dyndns Hostname To Connect To Server

Apr 9, 2010

I've recently set up an Ubuntu server and from within the network I can do several things like: log in via SSH, transfer files via FTP, and remotely control Torrents from other computers. My end goal is to be able to access these services by using my dyndns hostname (example.dyndns.org)from an external network.

When I type my dyndns name in my web browser it opens up my router page. How would I set things up so that I can just type my dyndns hostname to point directly to my server, instead of the router page?

All computers are connected to a router which is connected to an ADSL modem, with automatically assigned I.P addresses.
