I am very new to Linux / Ubuntu so please excuse my ignorance.
I have installed ubuntu server 12.04. I have installed vsftpd. I have edited vsftpd.conf and made sure I have uncommented local_enable & write_enable are set to YES. The vsftpd service is running. Ports 20 & 21 have been allowed in ufw. I am able to ping to my router and also ping to www.google.co.uk so as far as I am aware that means DNS is being resolved.
I can also log on via SSH with no problems at all (Not sure if that has any relevance but thought I'd mention it)
What I can't do is connect using 'filezilla' , 'cuteFTP' etc. This is the msg I get back from Filezilla
I have restarted service. When I log in as anonymous I connect but can't do anything. I have double and treble checked username and password. As I say I log into SSH with same credentials OK everytime.
Status: Connecting to 192.168.0.2:21... Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message... Response: 220 (vsFTPd 2.3.5) Command: USER grant Response: 331 Please specify the password. Command: PASS ************* Error: Could not connect to server
As I say I am very new at this so any help would be much appreciated.
