View Full Version : [ubuntu] Access my server via FTP - How to?

April 29th, 2008, 09:50 PM

I have just installed 8.04 server edition, followed by Webmin.

I have tried connecting to the server via FTP from another box on my network, but the FTP client says:-

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

I see the "It works!" message when I surf to the server's IP.

I am wondering if anyone could tell me how to log into the server via FTP?

Many thanks for any help!

Thanks, I saw this thread. Was unsure whether proftpd might have been already installed during the OS's installation. I did select LAMP so thought it may have already been there.


Thank you.
