    FTP Server in Ubuntu (vsftpd) help

    http://www.wikihow.com/Set-up-an-FTP...n-Ubuntu-Linux

    I followed the directions there but it doesn't work, I cannot even FTP localhost on here, let alone from the internet!

    ssh is easier to set up and will do sftp

    mpg@MIKED6:~$ ftp localhost
    Connected to localhost.
    500 OOPS: vsftpd: both local and anonymous access disabled!
    ftp>
    I got something, maybe I can't FTP from localhost (dunno why, that's the best way to test it)

    Re: a

    How can I change the folder that is the root for the FTP server I do not want "/" as the FTP folder, I want "/home/mpg/Desktop/Incoming/FTP"

    EDIT: WTF if I ftp "localhost" or "Miked6" from my machine (mike6 is my hostname) I get the root folder (/), but if I ftp miked6 from another machine on my network I get my home folder.

    C:\Users\Mike>ping My Home IP

    Pinging My Home IP with 32 bytes of data:
    Reply from My Home IP: bytes=32 time=76ms TTL=252
    Reply from My Home IP: bytes=32 time=206ms TTL=252
    Reply from My Home IP: bytes=32 time=372ms TTL=252
    Reply from My Home IP: bytes=32 time=166ms TTL=252

    Ping statistics for My Home IP:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 76ms, Maximum = 372ms, Average = 205ms
    I cannot FTP into my Machine from the internet, I have ports 20 and 21 forwarded on my router, this is what I get when I ping my home IP from outside my network.
