when you say “the ftp details” are you asking where is the documentation
telling how to use the client? or what? what client are you using?

a command line FTP is installed by default…if you want a GUI FTP
client you need to install one…open YaST > Software Management and
search with ftp

you will get a long list, not all of which are a GUI client…i can’t
recommend any particular one (never used any of them) but i see
filezilla that i seen other write about…

personally i use Firefox and the add-on FireFTP and the FireFTP button,
i find them fast, friendly and no how-to needed…

oh wait! i think both Konqueror and Dolphin are usable as FTP clients
allowing drag and drop, etc…just click on split view, then click near
the folder icon, which will reveal an address bar…enter the distant
FTP address and away you go…

i always have a problem with sending my reply after i hit quote message and then send my message. it happened on windows and now it happened on linux.

what i mean to reply is this: when i installed linux from the ubuntu 10.4 disc i went to other and selected minimal server. then i wrote down the home made details of the stuff. then i inserted the disc again and clicked the second option which i think was the kde desktop.

so now when i go to my terminal in the start menu it always says “rich@ubuntu”.

could my server be called one of these 2 names: the hostname or the domain name? where do i find these details out? shouldnt they be stored on my computer in a file saved somewhere?

May I ask you to type the following command in a terminal from the computer in front of which you’re sitting right now and post the output:

lsb_release -a

LSB Version: n/a
Distributor ID: SUSE LINUX
Description: openSUSE 11.4 (i586)
Release: 11.4
Codename: Celadon

OK. I wanted to make sure that you were using openSUSE.
If you need a GUI ftp client, I recommend gftp. It’s easy to configure and use and will most likely do what you want.

as you wrote here, this doesn’t make sense. if you want to log in from
another computer, you need the FTP server’s details. you use a client to
log into a server. the client in this case is on the “other computer,” and
you want it to log into the server on the computer that runs openSUSE –
or is it the other way around?

phanis.

i want to test it out from my laptop. the laptop has windows vista on it. this desktop pc i am always using myself runs opensuse 10.4. i am just asking for the details i typed in because i think i tried twice or 3 times.

one disc had a full server thing on it that had a full one line of spaces available for me to type in the host name then server name and my username and password. thats not the disc im using now tho.

the one im using is on ubuntu opensuse 11.4 or 10.4. i selected other and mimumal server. then i installed the disc again and selected option number 2 which was the kde desktop.

now that i have the terminal like i wanted i want to use it to send me files if im over someones house and on their pc. my terminal doesnt ask em to sign it in since after i installed the kde desktop, every time i opened the terminal it is always set to “rich@ubuntu”.

now i better go type in ‘hostname’ into the terminal to see if my details come up.

i want to go to my laptop and see if i can connect to my server im running here. also do i need to exit opensuse and go into the terminal somehow? i hope not because im downloading right now.

i typed in hostname in the terminal and it said ubuntu.

I think he want us to tell him what he has to write on the client to
connect to his system (server). But how can we know that? It is his machine.

Your post is quite difficult to understand.

Assuming that you have correctly installed an ftp server on the desktop
(which I doubt, given the lack of details and precision of your post), in
the client you have to give the IP number of the server (not the name,
unless you have a local name server installed (which I doubt), and the
adequate login name and password. You need to open properly both firewalls.

I can not give you more details.

Perhaps it would be easier to use ssh - putty in Windows. No firewall
problems, it comes configured be default.

ok, that is a very different question than you asked the first time…

now you wish to use use an FTP client on the Vista machine to connect to
the FTP daemon running on the openSUSE 11.4 machine, to do that you need
to install and setup ftp daemon…or maybe it is already installed
depending on how you installed 11.4

did you select the server pattern during install?

then, once installed you must set it up…which includes establishing a
password if you wish for other than anonymous log ins and setting up
your firewall to allow entry etc…

so, the “details” you are asking us to provide you are the address of
your running ftpd and its password (if not anonymous), neither of which
we can know because it is up to you to set them up on the openSUSE machine…

I am as confused by your question as are others. But let me try this part and hope it is what you are asking.

Your computer will have been assigned a hostname and a domain name. It won’t be “ubuntu”. However, you can actually change the assigned hostname in Yast. Open Yast, go to “Network Devices” -> “Network Settings”. Then click the “Hostname/DNS” tab.

It is possible that your computer is getting its domain name over the network from your router or from your ISP. In that case, the settings that I indicated won’t change what your router or ISP is supplying.

You talk about using “rich@ubuntu” at the start menu. If that refers to the start menu of Windows, then that is a different question. What Windows thinks your computer is called, and what your computer is really called, need not be the same. That “ubuntu” part could come from information in Windows, or it could come from your router.

if you have an ftp server running and you want to log into it, you need the ip address of the sever, and the password/username of the account.
if you have root priviliges use ifconfig to tell you your ip address.
whwn you have that use ftp xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and use your usual username and password to log in.
make sure you have an ftp server running.
