Re: FTP Question

Can you provide us further information regarding what the remote user experiences? Errors etc.

What do the log files show?

Have you tried for a 'generic' Internet connection?

I have a RHEL 4 system.  A user outside of our network previously was able to FTP to the system.  Now he is not.  The log shows the following:


2011 Jun 15 13:23:48 myserver [authpriv.notice] vsftpd: pam_unix(vsftpd:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ftp ruser=myuser rhost=   user=myuser


If I log in as the user from on our network, it works just fine.


What do I need to check to troubleshoot this?
