i am able to ftp from and to the rx2660 server. but when i try to ftp from rx6600, i get the message incorrect login.
i have checked the /etc/services, and the ftp services is enable. i also checked the thru
SAM --> network and communication --> network services and the ftp services is running.
later once i tried to ftp, i gave the username and in the password field i didnt gave any password and that allowed me to login to the ftp and allowed me to get and put files......
does anyone have any idea what may be the problem??????????
why does this happen???????????????????????
waiting for some reply.

"... later i changed the root password ..."
So I guess something was wrong with the first password.
Hope this helps!

This is NOT a valid shell for root. It must be /sbin/sh. (I doubt this is the ftp issue.)
I assume root has the same password entry for the two machines?

On your first (failed) attempt from the rx6600 you were using root and entering a password.
On the next (successful) attempts you were using root without a password.
I'm assumping the issue is that you're logged into the rx6600 as root.
Then you run ftp and open a connection to the rx2660. Is that correct?
If it is then when you login (telnet/ssh/console) to the rx2660 as root do you enter a password? Or is it blank?
If blank then looks like you have to create a password on the rx2660 for root.
If you do have a password assigned for root on the rx2660 already then it'll be a different issue.
But from the wording of your post I'm wondering what the status of your passwords are for root...before going onto ftp setup issues.

1)i have no probs loggin into the server rx2660 thru telnet as well as SSH with username and password.
a) but when i loggin to the rx6600 i am able to login with SSH with username and password,
b) but when i try to loggin to the rx6600 with telnet using username and password, i am not able to login it gives incorrect password.
c) and if i loggin to rx6600 with telnet and username and no password i m able to login successfully.
3) i am facing the same problem (2b) and (2c) when i try ftp from rx2660 to rx6600. i.e. able to login with username and no password
and incorrect login if giving username as well as password. even if i giv the correct passowrd...
i kno it is complicated. it is clear after you read it 2-3 times...
bottom line is m facing prob with ftp and telnet only not with SSH.
also the above prob got resolved after i changed the password and a reboot. dun kno if this caused the prob to b resolved.

Do you have the option of turning off telnet and ftp altogether? We turn them off for security reasons and have moved over to SSH based methods completely.
Still trying to figure out a solution to your issue.
This is a shot in the dark....You wouldn't have 2 different versions of ftp on the server would you? Competing on the same ports....?

i checked the /etc/services file, the port used by the ftp services is not used by ny other services........
anyways kevin thanks for your effort......
