Hi Guys,

I used to paste an thread about FTP login from XP "Network places" into my Linux Home folder /home/david of a Linux Enterprise Workstation 4 machine (RH EW4). The old article is "http://www.linuxhelp.ca/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=3&t=6448", that issue now has been fixed, thanks to Termina and all guys helped me before.

That problem can be elimated by removing -a option in file "/etc/xinetd.d/gssftp", in the line "server_args".

Now the new problem is like this
********************************************************************************
********
An error occurred opening the folder in the FTP server, Make sure you have permission to access that folder,
Details:
The server name or address could not be resolved
********************************************************************************
********

The entry I made in XP Network places is "ftp://david:mypassword@12.34.567.89" 123456789 is ip address. I did similar things to Red hat 9, solaris all no problem.

I made another try by go to XP>IE>Options>advanced>browsing>and Unchecked " Enable folder view for FTP sites", now I will have two possibilities, sometimes A sometimes B.

A: success, can view folder / file by text. But can not save folder.
B: Warning message like this:
********************************************************************************
********
FTP replies error
InterScan HTTP Version 3.8-Build_3013 $Date: 01/20/2004 13:22:0038$
ftp server replies:
500 'RETR ': command not understood.
home/david/: no such file or directory
********************************************************************************
********

Please advise! I am so keen to solve it. I am not an system engineer but solving Linux issue is just so fun and remaining problem is so frustrating....

Yours truly,
Dunhill

As simple as this sounds, one problem that might be causing the issue is your home path:
CODE
home/david/: no such file or directory

The preceding '/' is necessary. You will want '/home/david'.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by:
QUOTE

Do you mean that you can successfully log into your home directory but unable to transfer file from the RH server to your workstation? If so- what error message do you get? And who is giving you the error: the FTP server or Windows?

for "home/david/: no such file or directory" message, seems it is given by the FTP server:
********************************************************************************
********
FTP replies error
InterScan HTTP Version 3.8-Build_3013 $Date: 01/20/2004 13:22:0038$

ftp server replies:

500 'RETR ': command not understood.


home/david/: no such file or directory.
********************************************************************************
********
I never made any change for the RH EW4, and dunno why /home/david now is home/david.



For "A: success, can view folder / file by text. But can not save folder. "
Yeah, I can see a list of directories and files, but i can only save as target files, not for directory, becase that window is a webpage in a browser, there is no folder view.
