The connection is established, then immediately rejected. This would be a typical response if the system has TCP Wrapper installed and configured to reject access from your IP address.

Re: Unable to ftp access on hpux

Which FTP server software are you referring to?

Do you use the standard inetd started ftp daemon?

Is (extended) logging of your ftp daemon enabled?
If so, where does it log to, syslog, standard (daemon) facility?
Then consult your system's syslog.log for entries by ftpd.
It possibly will tell what causes it to reject a client's login request.

What does this print on you FTP server host?

# grep ^[^#]*ftp /etc/inetd.conf
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd ftpd -l
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/tftpd tftpd\


Is the user who is denied login possibly listed in /etc/ftpusers in case you installed and are using another ftp server software?

Is the user's login shell listed in /etc/shells?

e.g.

# grep $(pwget -n SUSPECT_USER|cut -d: -f7) /etc/shells

Are tcp wrappers for ftpd in effect?
Do files /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} exist?
If so are there lines with regard to ftp?

As an hpux specific, does a file /var/adm/inetd.sec exist?
If so, are there lines with ftp reference?

There are lots of things to check.
But first I would go for syslog.log.

Re: Unable to ftp access on hpux

Wow, lots of solution, lots of suggestions. But you can start with the simple steps..

1. Can you ping 143.0.143.0 from your PC?
2. If not than check the routing table of hp-ux box.
3. ftp is by default enabled in hp-ux box. If not then check /etc/inetd.conf file

Upon completion the above steps then you can find your solution.

Re: Unable to ftp access on hpux

Check /var/adm/sylog for any ftp related error

check ftpd daemon is running

check ftp configuration on /etc/inetd.conf the line "ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd ftpd -l" : should be uncommented

check /etc/services you could see "ftp 21/tcp # File Transfer Protocol (Control)"

user name you are using should not be listed in /etc/ftpusers
