Subject: FTP server on Linux(Ubuntu)

Hello,

This is regarding use of FTP server on a Linux (Ubuntu) PC.

I am trying to use an Ubuntu 14.04 PC as an FTP server by using the 'vsftpd' application.
The client is a VME based CPU running vxWorks that needs to download kernel image over FTP.

This client is getting served when I am using a Windows based FTP server.

But somehow the FTP connection is not getting established between the VME client and Ubuntu based server.

The error messages I get on client side are like :
FTP Transfer Failed
Error Code = 0x3d  (ECONNREFUSED)

I googled about the problem and tried a few suggestion of making changes in the vsftpd.conf file , but to no avail.

Also I do not see any entry in the log file on the server (/var/log/vsftpd.log)

The FTP service seems to be running on the PC as I get a task ID. Also when I type the command 'ftp <self IP-address>' in a terminal , I get the 'ftp>' prompt.

Has anybody successfully used the vsftpd on Ubuntu (or Linux in general) PC to server an external VME like client ?

Thanks,
Amit
