View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ftp files from local network

March 24th, 2011, 11:03 AM

I have a Ubuntu machine set up as the main server at work and another Ubuntu machine on the network. They see each other fine and I can transfer files between the two etc but what I really need to be able to do is transfer files via ftp from the server machine to a webserver using the second machine. I can do this perfectly fine when I use one of our windows boxes (with smartftp) but the ftp clients I have tried on the second Ubuntu box don't seem interested in viewing the network at all.

Is this down to the choice/configuration of the ftp client or is there some fiddling with Ubuntu that needs doing?
