...Linux Passive FTP Configuration
I am using RedHat Legacy Linux 7.2 on each of two servers.
Server A intends to invoke an FTP client to transfer a file to/from
the FTP daemon on Server B.
The FTP daemon is running proftpd 1.2.1.
The FTP file transfer must be done in passive mode, not active mode.
Passive FTP is problematic. The firewall must be opened to a
restricted range of high-numbered
ports > 1023.
Okay, here is what I have done, and passive FTP still does not work.
1. Made sure our network firewall allows access to the FTP daemon
port 21 from anywhere.
2. Made sure the FTP daemon port 21 is allo...Configure DSL and Linux network
I have 2 XP/Linux dual boot machines.
Previously, these machines were connected with a
crossover cable, and they could talk to each other.
But now, there is a DSL modem, and router that
is not configured right.
I have installed DSL on the XP side, and it is working well.
Now, I'm trying to get it to work on Linux. First and
foremost, I need the two Linux machines to talk to each
other, through the router. Internet is secondary.
So far, I can't even ping the modem, or router, so
some fundamental configuration is needed.

I just installed slackware 10.0- no real problems that I can tell, other

I know very little about linux at this point or about real computing
(outside windows). I found some general tutorials on this on google, but
they seem to be over my knowledge level. I don't want to change any files
or variables without knowing what I am doing. I would appreciate any help

I need to setup FTP transfer from AS400 to a FTP server on our local
network. When I use IP address for that server, everything seems to be
OK, but when I use that server's name, I am getting message "Cannot
resolve host name at this time." Apparently I need to configure and
start DNS service on AS400 and point it to our DNS server. Could
somebody, please, let me know how to do that for v3r2? Even if you
know how to do that for later OS400, please, still let me know as I
hope it would be similar on V3R2.

I just installed Tiger on a disc that I had to erase previously,
therefore I could not take over the configurations from the previous
Now I'm trying to reconfigre all the network locations that I had. Some

I saved the whole disc on an external drive, so I figure there must be a
file somewhere that contains all that information. But where?
Thanks for any help!

The company will announce Nterprise Linux Services, although
the product will not ship until the end of this year. The

We are running 10.3.5 on a Xserve which, among other services, handles
ftp. We have a client who cannot connect to our FTP server under
active mode. Passive is not enabled in my router as only ports 20 and
21 point to the FTP server. Is there a workaround for this client to
connect? If I open up a wide range of ports, does this not pose a
security risk? My router only allows me to specify the port I want
and point it at a specific IP address. It doesn't allow for a range
of ports to be opened. After speaking with Apple, they said I could

I have 2 computers connected via ethernet, one running Debian and the
other running Windows XP. The windows machine has a dial-up connection
to the internet, and I've enabled sharing on that connection. I've
also enabled routing in the registry. In the Linux machine, I've set
the gateway to the ethernet IP of the windows machine. Now the problem
is that although domain resolving works nice and fast, none of the
applications seem to be able to make any communication with the
internet. For example, Mozilla resolves the domain, then shows the

I assume I have other samba settings to change so I can use OS/2 shares
