cannot ftp login...urgent!!

Please help..

I have installed RH 7.1 x86
[root@ectest /root]# netstat -na|grep 21
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:21 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
After installing RH.. and reboot I cannot ftp login

then I execute the command
/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart
I can ftp login..
I don't understand.
Why rebooting each time
then I cannot ftp login
port 21 is enabled every time.

[root@ectest /root]# cat /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd
# default: on
# description: The wu-ftpd FTP server serves FTP connections. It uses # normal, unencrypted usernames and passwords for authentication.
service ftp
{
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.ftpd
server_args = -l -a
log_on_success += DURATION USERID
log_on_failure += USERID
nice = 10
disable = no
}

Re: cannot ftp login...urgent!!

Is xinetd enabled to start after boot?
Check with this command:
chkconfig --list xinetd
3-4-5 should be set to on
if they're set to off just set them to on.

Re: cannot ftp login...urgent!!

1. Go to http://updates.redhat.com/7.1/en/os/i386/ and try to download xinetd-2.3.7-4.7x.i386.rpm.
2. Install it with "rpm -Uv xinetd-2.3.7-4.7x.i386.rpm".
3. Re-start the machine.

Hi mw,
You don't have to install xinetd. It is ftp telnet problem not xinetd

1. What are the output of /var/log/messages when you try to ftp?

2. what rpm you have
#rpm -qa |grep tel
#rpm -qa |grep ftp

3. #chkconfig --list |grep telnet
4. #chkconfig --list |grep ftp

telnet/ftp are prot 23 and 21.

Thanks

google and have a look at the wu-ftpd mailing lists.

btw, we use vsftpd and no issues with it. dont have a box running wu-ftpd around to have a look.

Re: cannot ftp login...urgent!!

You /etc/xinetd.d/telnet file should look like this

service telnet
{
disable = no
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
log_on_failure += USERID
}


Your services file should have following lines uncommented

# grep telnet services
telnet 23/tcp
telnet 23/udp
rtelnet 107/tcp # Remote Telnet
rtelnet 107/udp
telnets 992/tcp
telnets 992/udp


Please post message from your /var/adm/messages file when you try to telnet or ftp.
