i am trying to make my ftp server accessible (for download only) by other computers on my LAN using anonymous user and without password, when i connect to it from the same pc using filezilla it works well but when trying from other PCs on the LAN it says
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message... Error: Could not connect to server
iam using Ubuntu 11.04 and this is my configuration:
anon_root=/home/ftp no_anon_password=YES listen=YES anonymous_enable=YES local_enable=NO write_enable=NO anon_upload_enable=NO anon_mkdir_write_enable=NO dirmessage_enable=YES xferlog_enable=YES connect_from_port_20=YES chown_uploads=YES ftpd_banner=Welcome to blah FTP service. secure_chroot_dir=/var/run/vsftpd pam_service_name=vsftpd rsa_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/vsftpd.pem
the directory /home/ftp permission:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2012-02-04 19:39 ftp
i think since it says "connection established" there is no problem with the iptables right? and the selinux is not installed either! i have lost many hours on this problem :'( !! any help please..
