vsftpd

Postby Duerdum9 » 2012/02/17 00:39:31

I need some help here. I'm trying to make vsftpd working. I've installed it using "yum install vsftpd" & it worked perfectly. Now, here comes my problem. When I try & connect with a FTP account I created, it says following (In FileZilla).

Code: Select all
Status: Connecting to xx.xxx.xxx.xxx:21...
 Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
 Response: 220 Welcome to xxxxxxxx game servers.
 Command: USER texxx Response: 331
 Please specify the password. Command: PASS ********
 Response: 230 Login successful.
 Command: OPTS UTF8 ON Response: 200
 Always in UTF8 mode.
 Status: Connected
 Status: Retrieving directory listing...
 Command: PWD
 Response: 257 "/home/texxx"
 Command: TYPE I
 Response: 200 Switching to Binary mode.
 Command: PASV
 Status: Retrieving directory listing...
 Command: cd "/home"
 Error: Connection timed out
 Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

[Moderator edit: Manually wrap ridiculously long line running-off-the-right-side-of-the-page due to use of broken code widget.]

Any help please. For your information, the folder /home/texxx/ IS there. I got no clue what's going on, I would appreciate some help - thanks! :)

This is my /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file.

Code: Select all
# Example config file /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
#
# The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file
# loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.
# Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults.
#
# READ THIS: This example file is NOT an exhaustive list of vsftpd options.
# Please read the vsftpd.conf.5 manual page to get a full idea of vsftpd's
# capabilities.
#
# Allow anonymous FTP? (Beware - allowed by default if you comment this out).
anonymous_enable=NO
#
# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
local_enable=YES
#
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
write_enable=YES
#
# Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,
# if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)
local_umask=022
#
# Uncomment this to allow the anonymous FTP user to upload files. This only
# has an effect if the above global write enable is activated. Also, you will
# obviously need to create a directory writable by the FTP user.
#anon_upload_enable=YES
#
# Uncomment this if you want the anonymous FTP user to be able to create
# new directories.
#anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
#
# Activate directory messages - messages given to remote users when they
# go into a certain directory.
dirmessage_enable=YES
#
# Activate logging of uploads/downloads.
xferlog_enable=YES
#
# Make sure PORT transfer connections originate from port 20 (ftp-data).
connect_from_port_20=NO
#
# If you want, you can arrange for uploaded anonymous files to be owned by
# a different user. Note! Using "root" for uploaded files is not
# recommended!
#chown_uploads=YES
#chown_username=whoever
#
# You may override where the log file goes if you like. The default is shown
# below.
#xferlog_file=/var/log/vsftpd.log
#
# If you want, you can have your log file in standard ftpd xferlog format.
# Note that the default log file location is /var/log/xferlog in this case.
xferlog_std_format=NO
#
# You may change the default value for timing out an idle session.
#idle_session_timeout=600
#
# You may change the default value for timing out a data connection.
#data_connection_timeout=120
#
# It is recommended that you define on your system a unique user which the
# ftp server can use as a totally isolated and unprivileged user.
#nopriv_user=ftpsecure
#
# Enable this and the server will recognise asynchronous ABOR requests. Not
# recommended for security (the code is non-trivial). Not enabling it,
# however, may confuse older FTP clients.
#async_abor_enable=YES
#
# By default the server will pretend to allow ASCII mode but in fact ignore
# the request. Turn on the below options to have the server actually do ASCII
# mangling on files when in ASCII mode.
# Beware that on some FTP servers, ASCII support allows a denial of service
# attack (DoS) via the command "SIZE /big/file" in ASCII mode. vsftpd
# predicted this attack and has always been safe, reporting the size of the
# raw file.
# ASCII mangling is a horrible feature of the protocol.
#ascii_upload_enable=YES
#ascii_download_enable=YES
#
# You may fully customise the login banner string:
ftpd_banner=Welcome to xxxxxxxxx game servers.
#
# You may specify a file of disallowed anonymous e-mail addresses. Apparently
# useful for combatting certain DoS attacks.
#deny_email_enable=YES
# (default follows)
#banned_email_file=/etc/vsftpd/banned_emails
#
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
chroot_local_user=NO
#chroot_list_enable=YES
# (default follows)
#chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd/chroot_list
#
# You may activate the "-R" option to the builtin ls. This is disabled by
# default to avoid remote users being able to cause excessive I/O on large
# sites. However, some broken FTP clients such as "ncftp" and "mirror" assume
# the presence of the "-R" option, so there is a strong case for enabling it.
#ls_recurse_enable=YES
#
# When "listen" directive is enabled, vsftpd runs in standalone mode and
# listens on IPv4 sockets. This directive cannot be used in conjunction
# with the listen_ipv6 directive.
listen=YES
#
# This directive enables listening on IPv6 sockets. To listen on IPv4 and IPv6
# sockets, you must run two copies of vsftpd with two configuration files.
# Make sure, that one of the listen options is commented !!
#listen_ipv6=YES

Perhaps a permission problem. Do things work within /home/texxx?

Are you using iptables? Did you open only port 21 for access and did you remember to load the ip_conntrack_ftp module?

Yes, I'm using iptables, but I've tried & do 'service iptables stop' but it doesn't do anything different. But, I did add port 21 to it. As well as the passive port.

"and did you remember to load the ip_conntrack_ftp module?" I don't know how to do that, I'm a newbie to CentOS, specially 6.

Perhaps a permission problem. Do things work within /home/texxx?

The folder in /home/texxx is chrooted (In FileZilla, it says "Owner/Group", and right below, it says texxx:texxx). The permission is drwx (700).

EDIT: I just tested, I can transfer items over, using root.

Hmm, connection timed out is a funny error to get for a permissions problem.

To load ip_conntrack_ftp you run, as root

Code: Select all
modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp


and if it helps then you edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config and add it to the IPTABLES_MODULES= line

Sadly, it did not help.
About: Command: cd "/home" I think it was my root I have multiple tabs open, from different servers. Even though I waited a bit, for the rest to shoot off their commands, I guess it came in-between it. I'm sorry about that.
