Trouble managing FTP Server from different user account

#1 Post by jttran28 » 2019-06-28 22:40

FileZilla server was setup with User A's domain account. Everything is working great on the client end. I can manage the FTP server with no issues on User A's domain account. When I login to User B's AD account, I cannot connect to the server. All I get is:

Trying to reconnect in 5 seconds
Connecting to server 127.0.0.7:14147...
Error, could not connect to server

Any ideas?

127.0.0.0/8 (127.0.0.1 - 127.255.255.254) all mean "localhost" aka that very same machine the server is located on. If the managing account is not on the same machine (or AD is doing some weird redirection stuff), the localhost addresses will fail.
In that case, you'd first need to admin locally, using user A account, to enable remote administration (+ setting proper IP bindings and a password). After that, the AD account will be able to connect using the LAN IP+password.

Note that remote administration has a few shortcomings, namely browsing for files/directories not working and any changes on the admin settings page being ignored.
