A Challenging situation for the MODERATORS

Well, I hope this way you will respond to my inquiries.

I have 4 unix servers,with static ips (though i dont think this is an issue)....i can telnet and rlogin from one to the other....if i FTP from on et othe other and try to execute :

cd /user return
/user : no such file or directory



if i execute the same after telnet or rlogin there is no prblem, so why at the ftp prompt there is this problem...another thing is that the shell is recognising the /etc and /bin at the ftp prompt Smilie , so what is the problem....

THANKS

(1) If you check the permissions and owner of the daemon process running FTP and compare it to the permissions and owner running other processes you might find that the process does not have permissions to access the directory/file.

(2) Also, some FTP access files, like '/etc/ftp.access' (on some system) insure that the root directory of the FTP process does not permit a FTP process to change directories out of the root.

A good guess is to check is (2) and your FTP process is simply configured not to allow an FTP user to move out of the FTP root directory.
