FTP problems

Postby Rad Arner » Tue Mar 13, 2007 8:32 pm

I am trying to FTP to my QNX system. I am trying as root with the password I
set up but I get the following error "530 User root may not use FTP". I put
the inetd into debug mode and it did see that someone want FTP. I also
looked at inetd.conf file. Any ideas?

As the message reports, user root is not allowed to use ftp.
Use a non-root username and password.

Sure!


Look into your /etc/ftpusers file.
You need (but this is strictly against all security rules!) to remove the
"root" user from the list.
