    I am a new user of REdhat 6.2. I have managed to install apache as well as PHP4 and mySQL...all is well (tested with a 'test.php' file).
    I cannot, however, get ftp to work. When I try to ftp into the server from my macintosh (using fetch), I cannot get access. The message that appears is "Error, the server dropped the connection (it may be to busy)".
    everything works other than ftp (ie. telnet, http) .
    Can anyone out there help as its driving me completely nuts (as well as costing me way to much time).
    ps. the network is a v.small LAN...just the server plus the mac with a hub 'in the middle'
    Thanks in Advance,
    Brad

    yse I do have the line:
    ftp stream tcp nowait.100 /usr/sbin/tcpd in.ftpd -l -a t

    in inetd.conf

    however I have the horrible feeling that the ftp is not running, as I've just looked in linuxconf and under the 'servers' there is no ftp server listed...

    the ftp line in inetd.conf is definatly not comented out tho.....

    thanks for your speedy reply
