[solved] Ftp connection refused

Post by maddinthebrain » Thu 01 Feb 2018 7:52 pm

Hi
I tried to setup a ftp upload on a local NAS. With Filezilla the connection works fine. When I use the same parameters like address, username, password etc. it doesn't work. In MXDiag file I found

Code: Select all

2018-02-01 20:29:25.615 Error connecting ftp - Connection refused
2018-02-01 20:29:25.743 Error uploading realtime.txt to /array1/Webserver/CumulusMX/realtime.txt : Connection refused
2018-02-01 20:29:25.774 Error uploading web/realtimegauges.txt to /array1/Webserver/CumulusMX/realtimegauges.txt : Connection refused
How to fill in the server address? I do it this way: ls-qvl500.fritz.box
Port is 21

As I said, this works fine with Filezilla. The FTP-Server uses TLS for authentication.

Help is highly appreciated!

Martin

Have you enabled FTP over TLS in MX and restarted?

Is this the option "Use SSL for FTP (FTPS)"?

OK it's working NOW. But some html files are empty. Like index.htm. What's missing?

Thx

One possible cause mentioned in the FAQ, I think. Caused by incorrect active/passive ftp mode. If not that, you could turn on ftp logging and look at ftp log.

I had to install ftpd to enable RPi to Synology FTP connection
sudo apt-get install ftpd

Now it's fine. It was that the rename option was not active.
Thx.
