FTP enabled but SAM has it disabled

We recently had a major issue whereby a test process ftp'd files to production servers. The application group first checked FTP in SAM (we give them restricted SAM access on test servers to turn services off/on), and it a status of disabled, but you could ftp to/from the test server. Turns out only the "ftp-data" entry in /etc/services was commented out; the "ftp" entry was not commented out, nor was the entry in inetd.conf. I've manually tested this (and I've issued an "inetd -c") and it would seem that commenting out the ftp-data entry results in the "disabled" status, yet the service is enabled. Is this a SAM bug ?

Luis,

welcome to the OpenVMS ITRC forum !

From reading your question, it looks like you are talking about some UNIX-like operating system.

Please consider to have your questions moved to the UNIX forum.

Sorry.
I did a search first to see if there was hit for my issue. Then after reading some entries decided to start a new thread, without looking at which forum I was currently in.
