Re: FTP Problem

Check if ftp service is enabled in inetd.conf and check /var/adm/inetd.sec file for restrictions.

Re: FTP Problem

On the non-working server try:
ftp localhost

if it is ok - contact your network admin to check access.

Re: FTP Problem

A couple of other things to check on 172.16.2.188:

- ipfstat -in
Lists your inbound firewall rules, if you are running ipfilter.

- cat /etc/hosts.deny
If you have ftpd wrapped with tcpd in /etc/inetd.conf

Re: FTP Problem

This will provide us more information.

1) Can you ping from 172.16.2.2 to 172.16.2.188

2) Login to 172.16.2.188
Run
# ftp 0

### Check if this works

3) When you are trying to do ftp what is the error you are getting

4) Is telnet working from 172.16.2.2 to 172.16.2.188

5) Did you try to ftp from Windows or any other server in same IP class to 172.16.2.188. Does it work ?
