View Full Version : SAMBA/vsftpd all remote programs will not read files

20th April 2005, 01:01 AM
Im not totally sure if this is a permission problem however I cannot get samba OR vsftpd to read any of the directories.

Samba says it cant find '/mnt/Data/' (when its there and permissions are correct... and its the same wil home dirs) and vsftpd does the same when u try and login:

[R] PASS (hidden)
[R] Error sending status request (Operation not permitted)
[R] Error sending status request (Operation not permitted)
[R] 500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/daniel

anyone else run into this issue?

did you figure out what it was? I'm seeing similar symptoms with vsftpd on my fc 4 test box.

scarf, not that I could tell you what exactly happens, but at least this workaround/hint:
If you switch on "disable SELinux protection for ftpd deamon" (in /usr/bin/system-config-securitylevel or system settings->security level : under the SELinux tab) suddenly I got my ftp access. Unfortunately, since my knowledge about SELinux is nonexistent yet, I can't say if this is a bug or a feature.
