Thread: using the ftp program in suse linux version 10.

  1. #1

    Unhappy using the ftp program in suse linux version 10.

    Hi all,

    I am trying to connect to the webserver using ftp command and i get the following response.

    Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:
    klauncher said: Unknown protocol ''.

    Kindly let me solve this issue.

    I also installed filezilla and used it, however it is getting timedout often in about 1 minute.

    How do i increase the time out or correct the ftp program.

    please help me.

    thanks and regards,

    saravanan

    Default Re: using the ftp program in suse linux version 10.

    WELCOME, but more info please:

    1. are you trying to connect via FTP _from_ a "suse linux version 10"
    machine to a web server on another machine?

    or

    2. are you trying to connect to a web server on a "suse linux version
    10" with FTP?

    in either situation:

    3. is the machine with the web server running ftpd?

    4. do you have access to the ftpd configuration file?

    5. the filezilla one minute timeout: is that a filezilla setting that
    you can change inside filezilla or is it at the server? find out by
    opening a terminal and use the following
    Code:
    ftp [your-server-name.com]
    to FTP to the server and see if it is killing the connection after a
    minute...(i think it is probably a user set time-out option...but, i
    never seen or used a filezilla...does its documentation address a user
    set time-out?)

    6. the machine(s) running "suse linux version 10": is that SUSE Linux
    Enterprise Desktop v 10 at your end, or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server v
    10 at the server end?

    in either case this is the openSUSE forum and the best answers for a
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop or Server question will come from the
    makers/seller/supporter of that system, at forums.novell.com

    however, you are welcome to hang out here and see if anyone can help
    you, once we understand your question..

    Hi DenverD,

    Thank you for your reply. i have replied to your queries in green color. Hope you have sufficient details to reply me.

    The main problem I am facing in SUSE is the ftp timeout in filezilla and not able to use the kde network folders to attach the ftp and the other one is not being able to install joomla.


    regards,

    I am connecting to a web server which is running linux too. This does not matter as the ftp is the same. I used ftp://username@domain.com/. During the time when i installed suse linux, there was no problem, however recently i am getting this error message.

    in either situation:

    3. is the machine with the web server running ftpd?
    [may be, i am using the same ftp in windows / ubuntu, earlier in suse too]

    4. do you have access to the ftpd configuration file?
    no

    5. the filezilla one minute timeout: is that a filezilla setting that
    you can change inside filezilla or is it at the server? find out by
    opening a terminal and use the following
    Code:
    ftp [your-server-name.com]
    This command is not working in my machine

    to FTP to the server and see if it is killing the connection after a
    minute...(i think it is probably a user set time-out option...but, i
    never seen or used a filezilla...does its documentation address a user
    set time-out?)

    6. the machine(s) running "suse linux version 10": is that SUSE Linux
    Enterprise Desktop v 10 at your end, or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server v
    10 at the server end?

    I am running suse desktop v10 and not SERVER

    Colours are not seen by everybody here. Please use quoting standards.

    There are doubts about the software you are using.

    By suse desktop you mean SLED? Then this is not the proper forum, this is
    for openSUSE.
