Re: ftp not returning prompt when transfer finished

They will need to be using some kind of ftp client, possibly only the command prompt ftp client in Windows. Can you show us what the commands are, and how they are issued?

Re: How to get back the exiting user's password.

There is no way to tell the password, because the password itself it not stored, only a hash of it. You need to reset it - or perhaps you could ask some of the other users using that account, what it is?

Re: Unable to connect to server

I really can't tell, as I have no idea how these services are implemented... It just looks like port 21 on no-ip is forwarded somewhere else. That is all I can see.

Re: Unable to connect to server

This server log is very different from the first one you posted. This second log shows that the client is indeed writing out the welcome message from the server: Response: 220-Cerberus FTP Server - Personal Edition Response: 220-UNREGISTERED Response: 220 Welcome to FTP Server The first log shows: R...

Re: Unable to connect to server

Yes, it could look like the client is not doing what it is supposed to. I can't see anything specific in the client log, try to compare a client log from the inside with the client log from the outside.

Re: Unable to connect to server

There must be some more in the server log, it doesn't show the connection attempt at all.

Re: Switching to port 22...can't get past LIST command

Wether it is possible do tweak intelligence in the router must depend on the router - but I doubt it very much. Somehow, low-end routers never have all the knobs and tweaks an advanced user needs... Windows server probably does not do anything intelligent (ever! :-) ). So it is the linksys router at...

You need to post logs showing a failed login - no ideas so far.

Re: Switching to port 22...can't get past LIST command

Now I am pretty sure, that this is due to the router at the client's end. If connecting to FTP on port 21, the router is intelligent and knows that it must replace the internal ip 10.0.0.18 with the external ip of the router within the PORT command. If port 22 is used, it doesn't recognize it as FTP...

Re: Switching to port 22...can't get past LIST command

The reason for this "half-connect" is quite simple. Several connections are used in FTP, and not just port 21 needs to be open/forwarded. (See http://www.mdjnet.dk/ftp.html .) The LIST requires a seperate data connection. If this is the setup, then I don't understand that it works at all for port 21...

Re: Switching to port 22...can't get past LIST command

It could perhaps be an "intelligent" router somewhere? Some routers/firewalls know FTP, and when they see it, they automatically allow the ports selected for active ftp (at the client's end) or passive ftp (at the server's end) to be forwarded, but when it is carried by port 22, the router doesn't r...

Re: Switching to port 22...can't get past LIST command

[2010-01-04 08:38:37]:COMMAND [ 9] - PORT 10,0,0,18,206,23 This means that the client wants the server to connect to it on 10.0.0.18:52759 (active FTP), but that ip is perhaps a LAN ip on the client side that doesn't make any sense for the server? I guess the client and the server are not located at...

Re: File xfers sucessfully, disconnects, then starts xfer again

No suggestions, really... In my own router there is no changing that timeout, so - learn to live with it. Another option is to cut the file in smaller pieces, and reassemble it again on the other side...

Re: File xfers sucessfully, disconnects, then starts xfer again

What catches my eye is that the first upload shown takes almost exactly 10 minutes, and that rings a bell. I have a "smart" router myself, that will cut tcp lines that have been idle for 10 minutes, and during upload of large files, the ftp control line is indeed idle. Not all ftp software can handl...

Re: Handle leak

In the latest release (3.1.0.2) the leaks on exiting (yes, exiting actually) the user manager and ip manager are still there. Also, there are quite a few GDI handles leaked in all three managers, and also in the about box.
