Description mitchell mcgee 2001-12-17 16:45:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

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-
allow-uid ftp
allow-gid ftp

and substituting classes from previous ftpaccess for class   all   
real,guest,anonymous  *

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.

Comment 2 mitchell mcgee 2001-12-17 17:27:42 UTC
Running ...

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.
