Description of problem:
After running rpm -Uvh wu-ftpd-2.6.1-16.7x1.i386 and rebooting, all
attempts to ftp to the affected sever result in "Connection Refused."
Changes to the new ftpaccess file including:
removing the following totally and in various combinations
deny-uid %-99 %65534-
deny-gid %-99 %65534-
and substituting classes from previous ftpaccess for class all
and rebooting failed to resolve the problem. Even restoring the previous
ftpaccess file and rebooting did not correct it.
Uninstalling wu-ftpd and reinstalling wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6 from the Red Hat 7.0
installation CD, restores the ftp functionality, but without the security
enhancements available in 16.7x1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh wu-ftpd-2.6.1-16.7x1.i386.rpm
3.From another LINUX or NT server on the LAN
>open (server DNS/IP)
Actual Results: Message returned "Connection Refused".
Expected Results: Message returned "Connected to" (server DNS).
Prompt for user name and password.
We are running Red Hat 7.0, kernel 2.2.19-7.0.12 on both affected servers
one with SMP and on without. The servers are COMPAQ Proliant 1600, and
Does "chkconfig wu-ftpd on ; service xinetd restart" fix the problem?
Btw: There is no need whatsoever to reboot the system after upgrading anything other than the kernel.
chkconfig wu-fptd on
service xinetd reload
fixed the problem.
The reason I am rebooting is that both this problem and one I was having with a
telnet upgrade did not show up until the system had been rebooted. In the case
of the telnet upgrade we did not start experiencing problems until a week after
the upgrade and after our normal weekend reboot. Consequently, it was not
immediately apparent that the problem was related to the upgrade.
Ok, closing NOTABUG since this is the expected behavior.
