FTP Error

Sat Dec 29, 2012 1:34 pm

I have recently added ProFtpd to my Pi and have it up and running. I can connect to it through a CMD on my Windows laptop and log in successfully. The problem arises when I try any commands like

Code: Select all

put     get    ls -l
I get the message saying that the command was successful but nothing happens. When I try

Code: Select all

ls -l
the FTP connection freezes and times out. When I try to "put and "get" text files they are sent and received blank (empty even though there is 200 lines of code in them on my Windows laptop)

Any help on why this is happening and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ethan

If you're using firewall software make sure TCP 20 from the Pi isn't blocked.
