Enable FTP on SCO

My goal is to use FTP to transfer file between PC and SCO Unix server.When I try to connect via FTP with root user, it failed.
What should I do? How to configure ftpaccess?

Thanks in advance!

Questions :

1) Are u trying ftp from unix to PC ?
2) Is it successful for the user other than root ?
3)What are error messages u are getting ?
4) What is the size of the file u are ftping ?
5) Do u have good credentilas ( id and passwd to that PC)
6) Are PC and SCO unix box are accessible to each other
7) Is PATH for ftp is there ? I mean ftp binary is there in yr box ??

You need to be a bit more specific. When you say "it failed" why did it fail, how did it fail, what errors were seen (if any).

If the machines are connected properly via the network (i.e. you can ping both ways), and the ftp daemon is installed correctly (either standalone or via inetd).... I wouldn't advise logging into an ftp server as root. However, if that's what you want/have to do, check to see if /etc/ftpusers contains a line "root". If so, delete it.

You may need to restart your FTP daemon depending on which one you use (unless you use inetd - then you won't Smilie ).
