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.

Sometimes FTP works partially, sometimes not at all.
I'll put this down and wait for OpenVms without FreeAXP.
But thank you for trying to help me.

This is probably a Windows and emulator problem and not related to VMS at all.

I have also had some network problems and I ended up with:
- adding a loopback adapter on Windows and giving that an IP address in a different subnet than the usual one
- put VMS on the emulator on that subnet

But different Windows version and different emulator so small chance that it would solve your problem.

Code: Select all

> I'm running the OpenVMS Student Package [...]

   I haven't tried that, so I know nothing about how its networking
should be configured.  (And if you described how you configured that,
then I missed it.)  But...

> But I can't get FTP to work from the host computer.

> 5=C:\>PING 192.168.0.1

   What's at "192.168.0.1"?  What are the addresses of the network
interfaces on the Windows system?  (Is there more than one?  I'm no
Windows expert, either, but I'd expect ipconfig to say something
interesting.)

   Normally, if "ping" fails, then it's unlikely that anything else
(like, say, FTP) would work.

> $ FTP 192.168.0.245
> 220 fimsvms.FIMSVMS FTP Server (Version 5.7) Ready.

   I'd be a little amazed if the VMS system couldn't talk to itself.


> Anyone understand what I'm doing wrong?

   Not I, but I know very little about what you're doing.  (That is, how
your LAN is configured, who's at which address(es), and what, exactly,
is connected to what, how.  Are there other devices at other addresses?)


> [...] the x.x.0.1 looks like a gateway address to me.

   To me, too.


> Sometimes FTP works partially, sometimes not at all.

   "Some_times_"?  I see no _time_ dependence.  What I believe that I
see is a VMS system which can talk to itself, but not to whatever might
be at "192.168.0.1".  And a Windows system which can talk to whatever
might be at "192.168.0.1".  Which is not a complete description of much.

   Not a very detailed description of anything.  Let's imagine that
someone wanted to duplicate what you did on his own system.  How helpful
would your (non-)description be?
