Gateway box is ip running FBSD 4.7, intend active with ftp
and telnet enabled.
Have 2 boxes on lan, one win box and one FBSD 4.9 box. Win box can
telnet and ftp to gateway fine.
Lan FBSD 4.9 box has same telnet and ftp config as gateway.
Can see intend running on both FBSD gateway and Lan boxes with ps ax
Can ftp and telnet from Lan FBSD to gateway.
Gateway box gets timed out, can not connect to when trying
to telnet or ftp to LAN box.
Can ping LAN FBSD box ok. No firewall on lan box and gateway
firewall only has rules to pass all on LAN interface.
Lan FBSD box can access public internet. Ran cvsup job to install
some port config files and it worked as expected.

Just do not understand why gateway can not access FBSD lan box using
telnet and ftp and always issues message connection: timed out. I
never get to the point where I am asked for id and password.

Any ideas

Try just


and login as "anonymous".

-v is a default case, IIRC, so there'd
be little difference.  Perhaps you'll
get some further information.

No firewall, ACL's etc. on FTP box?
