Description drooney 1999-09-20 16:09:02 UTC
I recently upgraded several systems from 5.2 to 6.0 and we
had some problems. We are a test engineering group and we
use VxWorks in our systems. During the test process we ftp
from a controller board into a linux machine for test
authentication. When we upgraded to 6.0 the test fails, to
verify I down graded one machine to 5.2, and the test passed

Presumably this is a wu-ftpd server bug ...

Try the wu-ftpd from Raw Hide on a 6.0 system. There's an RFC931
identd lookup timer problem that is fixed there. You can also disable
the identd from the command line -- IIRC, adding "-I0" to the daemon
startup will do the trick with the wu-ftpd-2.5.0 errata daemon.

Otherwise, I'll need more information. The output of tcpdump on a
(small) failed test would be helpful.

This problem appears to be resolved. Please reopen if I'm wrong.
