OK, I have been using Ensim, just added a interworx box, and for the life of me I can not figure out how to get my FTP program (SmartFTP) to log on to a site I set up on the box.
I have tried many set ups in SmartFTP, here is the fields I have to feel out in SmartFTP
Address: Login: Password: Port: 21
Lets assume my domain is “mydomain.co” and my username is: email@example.com and my password is: 123456
In the Address window I have tried both www.mydomain.com and ftp.mydomain.com
In the Login; field I have placed ftp.mydomain.com
In the Pasword field I typed in my password 123456
All the different arrangements I tried will no let me log in.
This is a new box is ther sometime in nodeworx I might have forgottent to set up?
Can you confirm that the FTP server is running? Try restarting the FTP service via NodeWorx.
Here’s a setup that should work:
I am set up in smartftp as you show in your post.
Using NodeWorx, the FTP shows to be running.
Then I stopped the FTP server and restarted it again using NodeWorx.
I went back to sitework and “reset” the ftp user password to make sure it was correct.
Then tried to log on via ftp again and I still keep getting this message through my ftp client:
“An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine.”
I am out of ideas.
Try changing the Active to Passive (or visa versa) in SmartFTP.
Tools --> Settings --> ‘connection’ - ‘mode’
Justec, thanks for the idea.
I tried that, changed from Passive to Actve, and still same problem.
OK, this problem has been fixed. Was a problem with the FTP server.
In order to fix passive mode issues in APF + proFtpd:
Edit “/etc/proftpd.conf” and add the following line:
PassivePorts 50000 51000
Edit “/etc/apf/conf.apf” and add the above range to the Ingress ports.
Restart apf and proftpd.
I don’t have problems with SmartFTP and APF unless I’m uploading big binaries but that’s also with the older, stainless steel version of WS_FTP. Isn’t this an issue with FTP clients in general and not just a SmartFTP problem?
I think somewhere in this forum there’s a post about replacing proFTPd with pureFTPd which I think would help, especially for VPSes.
