    Basic Help / Creating User


    All I have a username & pw that allows me to FTP into a remote server, access files, and upload files. Is there any way I could go about creating a new user for this server over FTP?

    When I attempt to SSH to do this with SSH commands I know like adduser, I get the message "port 22: Connection refused", which I believe means SSH is not set up on that server. Also, is there any way I can figure out whether my account is an administrator or guest? Does this even matter in terms of creating new users on the server?

    Any guidance greatly appreciated.

    Since you can't "ssh-secure connection" into server, Can you telnet into server and add the new user?
