Re: LAN connection FC5 - RH7.2



Thanks a lot, Nigel, setting up vsftpd absolutely did the trick. It has been a long day with much consentration, so that may account for my mixing up the FTP client and server. I may have dererved a rest now,
so I'll watch the news on TV. :-)

At installation time I did not enable the firewall, but I have done that
now, and I have checked the FTP box.
On RH7.2 I'm running pure-ftpd, and       "ps ax | grep gftp"  shows
"gftp-gtk", whici I suppose is the FTP server in FC5.
I guess both must be running, otherwise I could not reach the RH7.2 from
the FC5 either.
Connecting to RH7.2 from FC5 works fine.  But still, connection from
RH7.2 to FC5 is refused.
Do you mean that I have to set an FTP portnumber too in the forewall? I
found no way of doing that, there was just a checkbox to be marked.
BTW, Gnome was the only way i could access the firewall config tool , I
have been searcing in vain to find
its counterpart in KDE.  Any hints? I really prefer to work with KDE.

Gftp is the client on the FC5 machine. I usually install vsftpd, which is the FTP server. It isn't normally installed during the OS install, unless you select it during the custom install options.
