    How to FTP to local Ubuntu server

    Hello,
    I have a Ubuntu 8.10 desktop that I want to connect to a server running 8.04. The desktop and the server are each connected to a Netgear router. My desktop is 192.168.1.2 and the server is 192.168.1.3. (From my desktop, if I type in 192.168.1.3, I see "It works!")

    How can I get files from my desktop onto the server? FTP? I tried but it said "Connection Refused."

    Thank you,
    Clay

    I don't use straight FTP for obvious reasons but you can go into your U-Server and setup ssh (sftp) to allow you to swap files with the other machine (client)

    This link should help

    It might be worth mentioning that /var/www (the default location for files) is owned by root. A few options: Change ownership of the directory, or change DocumentRoot to a more accessible location (or "sudo" the files into /var/www).
