FTP not working

Post by fim » Thu Jan 12, 2023 10:41 am

I'm running the OpenVMS Student Package with Windows 10, 64-bit as the host computer.
But I can't get FTP to work from the host computer.

Fim,

do you have a working IP interface on your OpenVMS system ?

$ TCPIP SHOW INT

Any interface visible ?
Send/Recv counters > 0 ?

If not, use @TCPIP$CONFIG -> core environment -> Interfaces

Have you defined an IP address for your [student] system? the x.x.0.1 looks like a gateway address to me.

try $ SHOW DEVICE E* to see what network adapters you have available.

then $ MCR LANCP SHOW CONFIG to see the state of that/those adapters.

I'd pay attention to the link-up/link-down column.

Hi Fim,

In addition to Volker's question, is your virtual adapter mapped to a cable or Wi-Fi network? This video may also be of some help for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rf53T7i8RGs.

Hi volkerhalle

$ TCPIP SHO INT

Interface IP_Addr Network mask Receive Send MTU

LO0 127.0.0.1 255.0.0.0 4 4 4096
WE0 192.168.0.245 255.255.255.0 1806 16 1500
$

Other SHO options look reasonable, as far as I can understand.

Hi marty.stu

My adapter (USB-based) mapped to a cable.
I have done the installation according to the YouTube video as best I could.

Fim,

the EWA0 link is not UP !

$ mc lancp sho dev/int/message

should show a

30-DEC-2022 17:27:01.95 Link state: UP

message, if your LAN interface is supposed to work.

Note that your problem is not with OpenVMS, but most likely in the networking between FreeAXP and Windows.

Volker.

Fim,

there might be a FreeAXP.log file - anything interesting in there regarding networking ?

There is also a forum for FreeAXP:

Now I have decided not to run FreeAXP + OpenVms on my ordinary PC.
Instead, I have freshly installed Windows on a smaller PC and done the installation exactly as shown in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rf53T7i8RGs.
Everything (almost) works as it should.
But I still have a problem in OpenVms, the FTP server won't start.
And as I understand, the problem lies in OpenVms:
$ @TCPIP$FTP_STARTUP
%TCPIP-I-INFO, image SYS$SYSTEM:TCPIP$FTP_CHILD.EXE installed
%TCPIP-I-INFO, image SYS$SYSTEM:TCPIP$FTP_SERVER.EXE installed
%TCPIP-I-INFO, logical names created
%TCPIP-E-STARTERROR, error starting FTP service
-TCPIP-W-NORECORD, information not found
-RMS-E-RNF, record not found
%TCPIP-E-STARTFAIL, failed to start TCPIP$FTP
-TCPIP-E-ENABLERR, error enabling service

Fim,

did you configure (and start) the FTP server ?

@TCPIP$CONFIG -> 3 - Server components -> 5 - FTP

and the FTP client ?

@TCPIP$CONFIG -> 2 - Client components -> 2 - FTP Client
