FTP to FTP
Lately I've been seeing scans show up of a port 21 trying to connect to my
port 21 (I am not, BTW, running an FTP server). Is this just someone trying
to use my IP as the middleman in an FTP bounce attack, assuming my port 21
had been open and with a writeable FTP directory?
Is there anything like Netware-FTP (NWFTPD.NLM) in an OES-Linux environment?
Specificially we need the ability to do Remote Server Access (sometimes
referred to as a FTP gateway, I think), documented here:
I recently read the 11/30/06 Novell press release about OES 2.0, "The next
version will complete the shift to workgroup services running completely on
the Linux platform. Open Enterprise Server 2 will make traditional NetWare
workgroup services run on Linux as well or better than they do on
NetWar...FTP on OES Linux
I have an older OES linux server (SPIdent says SP1 plus updates) that is
used as an FTP server (vsftpd). Everything works okay in as far as LUM
enabling groups and users is fine and users can logon and transfer
However, it's been getting progressively slower as more and more LUM
users and LUM groups are configured. Uploads have slowed to a crawl (18
to 60 kbs) where it used to be 200 to 300 kbs). Also, running a long
listing (ls -la) takes minutes before any output is displayed to the
So, having not looked at this box much in 3 years other than adding
account...is SAMBA server a ftp server, if not what is the name of ftp server in linux?
Title explains it all, I want to configure and use a ftp server :)
Samba allows for file sharing with Windows system. You designate folders
which you want to appear as shares to Windows clients on a network. It
also includes tools to allow your Linux box to access windows shares on
If you want to set up an ftp server you might want to look at vsftpd
and proftpd - both are available in Yast. There are many tutorials on
...Using Linux to FTP to NetWare 6
We have an external agency that FTPs to our NetWare 6 server on a daily
basis. I just received an email from them yesterday stating that they had
just changed their operating system to Linux and now they cannot see the
directories on our server. They can see the NW6 box, but they cannot see
the directories/files. Are there any configuration changes I need to make
on the NW6 server to enable folks running Linux to successfully FTP into
the server? Thanks!

Hello! I'm trying to configure FTPD on our server. I have a
sys:\etc\nftpserv.cfg file, I also have the option to configure it under
iManager (version 2.5.20051102) under File Protocols/FTP but I can't
seem to locate NWFTPD.NLM !
I can't believe it didn't get installed, but that appears to be the
case, since FTPStart.NCF can't locate NWFTPD.
How do I resolve this and get NWFTPD installed? It doesn't appear
anywhere in the SP5 service pack for NW 6.5.

I have a win 2000 server set up as a web server with several IP adresses (6
total). I am running FTP service on two of these, but when I port scan, all
of the IP's have port 21 open. Is this normal?
My other services like SMTP and WEB only shows up on the IP's they are
If I try to connect with my FTP client on one of the IP's that is not set up
to run FTP it just says: "Socket connected. Waiting for welcome message."
and then after a while I get a timeout.
Is it normal or are some nasty Trojan listening and waiting for the right

I'd like some general opinions about which is better in terms of
reliability, speed, and security between NetStorage and FTP. Obviously
another option is to use OpenSSH but let's focus on NetStorage vs. Novell
FTP for now.

Should work. Do you have FTP services setup on your NW5 server?

...FTP on Netware
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
I have a Netware 6.5 SP3 server which uses FTP services. Does netware use =
active ftp? I only see configurations for passive FTP. I looked in the =
ftpserv.cfg file and only see the following options
#Minimum Port Number for Passive Connection. Default value is 1
#Maximum Port Number for Passive Connection. Default value is 65534
If it can support Active FTP how to I configure it?
