PCH FTP username and password help

PCH FTP username and password help
I absolutely cannot log on to this damned PCH with FTP.

I have updated to the newest firmware and applications offered and I get a 530 authentication error using username - ftpuser password - 1234

Just to be thorough I have tried username - ftpuser password - ftpuser. This is still a no-go.

I did a full reset to defaults, same issue.

I have tried filezilla, ncftp (linux), firefox, windows command line ftp and disabled passive mode on the FTP clients that allowed it. I have also tried setting a new password and it accepts it on the PCH config screen....but I still get a 530 authentication error when I try and connect from a client machine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

what adress do you connect to? Just to be sure that you not being forwarded to another computer on your network that also has port 21 open.

I am connecting directly to the address that is set as a persistent IP from my FreeBSD router box. The PCH shows the IP and it is in agreement with what I set to be assigned in dhcpd based on the MAC address.

For what it's worth, SMB works without a hitch. I also tried getting to it with SMB by directly typing \\ (the PCH IP) rather than just browsing the network by name and it is most definitely getting to the PCH that way.

Oh, and I also appear to have that strange bug where it fully boots up only after several tries in a row. Most of the time I get the initial screen, then black and nothing. If I get lucky it fully boots after several attempts by pulling out the power plug and plugging it back in.

Can you reach the PCHftp from your External IP? Ensure that port (21) are forwarded properly from your router/firwall

On my external (WAN) side I have only one single port forwarded in and that is for OpenVPN. I typically tunnel in to my LAN at home to remote control machines and remotely map SMB shares, but no other ports are open at all to the outside world.

When I attempt to log on to the PCH it appears that the daemon is Pure-FTPd, is this correct? I have worked with PureFTPd in the past using the non-sql based setup, there a way to get a shell on this thing and have a looksee?

pure-pw useradd -u 'user' -g 'group' -d 'chroot path'
then run pure-pw mkdb

This way I should be able to setup whatever I want it to be....? *sigh*

Bah....I think the next step will be to try reformatting that drive after getting my stuff off and then reinstalling the NMT applications.

Here's my fix.

The PCH would not let me do a clean format on the HDD, it kept saying 'no new version available'. I pulled the drive out, put it in a pc, deleted all partitions and then I was able to do a clean install on the PCH. After doing this FTP was working; bug?
