Re: ftp connection refused

Linda,
Easy question. After you start FTP, is there a process on your system called

TCPIP$NTP_1

??

try $ show system/proc=tcpip*

I often find with TCPIP services that the utility lies (sort of). It says it is "enabled/started", but this doesn't necessarily mean it is "running". If it is running, then the above process should exist, if it doesnt then it is not running.

If the process is not present, then this is the first problem to resolve.

I sure hope so. (I have one of each.)

But I'd worry less about finding a process
with a particular name, and more about an
actual "connection refused" complaint.
Anyone can name his process to anything.

alp $ show system /proc = *ftp*
OpenVMS V8.3 on node ALP 15-JUN-2010 13:36:21.17 Uptime 86 17:06:05
Pid Process Name State Pri I/O CPU Page flts Pages
20200442 TCPIP$FTP_1 LEF 10 198237 0 00:00:41.83 662 151 N
20203471 TCPIP$FTP_1 CUR 4 875198 0 00:11:33.17 231746 184

One of those is an FTP server process, and
the other isn't.

alp $ show proc

Re: ftp connection refused

When I do "show sys/proc=*tcpip*" I only have one process, "INETACP".

I stopped both FTP client and server and restarted them. I enabled the service manually and assigned the user name to the service manually but the ftp service is still showing disabled. The attachment is the output from what I tried. ???

Thanks.

Yeah, well, back at "connection refused" we'd
pretty well determined that the FTP server
wasn't running.

I'm sitting at a VMS workstation, so a
Microsoft Word document is not as convenient,
as, say, plain text would be. (It's not as
compact, either.)

Re: ftp connection refused

Linda,

From your output it appears the server was started, but the process hasn't survived.

Check the log files for clues, they should be in SYS$SYSDEVICE:[TCPIP$FTP] called TCPIP$FTP_RUN.LOG.

Perhaps there's something in SYLOGIN that's blocking the process from starting correctly?

Re: ftp connection refused

Hi Linda,

From the recent logs you have given, you have started both the FTP server as
well as the FTP client.

>> UDSRV6::SYSTEM>show sys/proc=*tcpip*
>> OpenVMS V8.3-1H1 on node UDSRV6 15-JUN-2010 16:12:58.71 Uptime 40 00:40:11

>> 000019A2 TCPIP$INETACP HIB 9 292 0 00:00:00.01 440 459
>> UDSRV6::SYSTEM>
From this output, we dont see the "TCPIP$FTP_1" process being active.
Looks like due to some problem, the "TCPIP$FTP_1" process is
either not getting started or getting exited.

As already advised, you might want to check the logfile
"SYS$SYSDEVICE:[TCPIP$FTP]TCPIP$FTP_RUN.LOG" for any messages that
are logged with respect to FTP server startup.

described the same problem, and was resolved by correcting sylogin.com

Take attention to what I was saying about the FTP server startup when it encounters an error from sylogin.

Re: ftp connection refused

Finally got it working. The problem was in sylogin.com. I added a command to define more symbols at the end of the file. The system does not like where I put it. I changed the order that the system likes and the FTP service is able to start. Thanks for everybody's reponses and advices.

Re: ftp connection refused

Ran into same problem today. Problem was again with sylogin.com but mine was permissions.

 

My sylogin.com was missing the W:E permission.
