Description of problem:
When I use the network boot disk and its FTP feuture in text mode (I didn't
type text but it runs into text mode by itself) to install RH 8.0. After it
gets address from DHCP and I giv to it an FTP server name and directory for
example 192.168.1.1 and rh8 it tryes to get files from address
ftp://192.168.1.1//rh8/..... instead of ftp://192.168.1.1/rh8/....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from disk and run installation (for me it runs text mode)
2.when you are asked then choose FTP option, giv it your FTP server name or
address and directory
3.On the second console it shows that wrong address with too many slashes
Actual Results: Dialog with text that installation image could not be copied
Expected Results: Continuing of installation process
I have used a workaround that i runs the HTTP server for the same sources from
FTP and used HTTP installation.
The address in the log console is just formatted wrong - ftp installs work fine.
Perhaps the ftp server your were trying was not accepting connections?
So I can get conneted to sources by other FTP klient (Windows Commander) as
What is the ftp daemon running on the ftp server?
So this thing ocurs on IIS 5.0 FTP service, PNWS - PinkNet Web Server that I
have tested. On Linux wu-ftpd all things goes right. Maybe some other win FTP
services doing better.
Is this a non-anonymous account that's not chrooted and not being accessed with
a relative path?
