ftp from unix to windows

Hi,

I have been using ftp to transfer files back and forth between windows and unix machines. But everytime i started the ftp session from the windows machine.

I have a question why I am not able to connect to the same windows machine from the same unix machine.

How do I do this?

Thanks,
-OldTrash

hi
You should configure your FTP server so the server starts at boot time automatically.
One more suggestion but Iam not sure that this will work !
You can use "mount" command to reach a remote machine.

mount box1:/disk2 -t nfs /mnt/remote

will mount the /disk2 part of "box1" machine to /mnt/remote in nfs (Netwok File System) format. But I am not sure (not tried before!) that this will work for a windows machine!(how can you represent your remote windows disk?)

You need to have ftp enabled on the Windows machine. Filezilla server is a good open source ftp server.

Question ftp server ?

that's the question. I know the problem between

'sending files from unix to windows nt'

the TCP/IP protocoll is installed on the windows machine, both computers are also connected, but when you make

ftp host

it only says that the host is unknown, but that isn't the reality. there is a host with this name and it is also connected.

should it be, that there must be running a ftp server program on the windows machine? and what type of program, what you should write in the line of the running ftp server program?

cheerz....

Are you trying to FTP AS ROOT from the unix box?

Most boxes restrict ftp for root.... check and see if you have a file called /etc/ftpusers.

Question no connection

I just don't understand why I'm not getting a connection from the unix sytem to the win nt system via ftp.

equal if I'm trying the host-name or the ip, unix can't find the windows nt machine.

by the way, they are connected and the tranfser between win nt and unix works by a simple program on the win nt system via ftp by TCP/IP. but I haven't got such like programs on the unix system, there's only the ftp command.

has anybody an idea why there can't be found a connection from unix to win nt but the other way round it works?

I'm logged in on unix as root. is that a problem?

or have I got to install a ftp server program on windows nt?


thx..
