Re: FTP into the unSlung NLSU2
- Hi Tony,
I did an nmap from a Windows XP PC to the unslung NLSU2 and this is
what is says:
21/tcp open ftp
23/tcp open telnet
80/tcp open http
139/tcp open netbios-ssn
389/tcp open ldap
3689/tcp open rendezvous
So I think there is already i program conflicting with the ftpd demon,
but maybe it is the ftpdemon itself? How can I figure this out on the

- Found it! And working now. After I did an nmap to the NLSU2 machine
from a Windows XP PC I found out that there was already a port 21
open. I search for the inetd processes and found out that it was
running several times. I killed al instances and then started the ftp
daemon manually by typing ftpd -D and it works now! I can ftp into the
NLSU2 without any problems!
Because the ftp is behind a firewall for now, I use it locally to
update my website (Apache on the NLSU2), when I want to have it also
accessible from the web I will probably will use vsftpd or something
like that. Now I have to figure out what the rights has to be for the
uploader to correctly display the pages. I am now using [root], but I
am sure that this will not be the correct way to make it secure.

server that I have installed (I want to use this server because it is
easy to configure the passive ports across my NAT router).
Can you enlighten me with more details of how to search for the running
port 21 process and how to kill it??
