This topic is to discuss the following lesson:
Awesome… thanks… been driving nuts for a while now.
This was incredibly useful - thank you! I’ve had this issue numerous times before and usually just used ncftp instead but I couldn’t do that today, so THANK YOU for solving this long-standing issue of mine!
You are welcome, I also took the easy way out normally but this time I needed LFTP for some backup script so it had to be fixed.
Thanks! You nailed it. All the LFTP scripting I had done in the past used SFTP servers so I was stumped when I got to this latest standard FTP server that didn’t allow SSL.
Great, really useful!
Thanks! You are the men!
Thanks dude, you saved me the day
I had a bash script tied to scrot to upload screenshots to my website and I had this exact problem a while back. I had thought something was wrong with my host. Thanks for this; my script now works correctly! I wonder what led the lftp guys to setting SSL support on by default. It’s usually a good idea, but how many hosts out there actually support SFTP?
I had the same problem back then. Security-wise is a good idea to use SFTP by default but the error message could be a bit less cryptic
THANK YOU. Saved my pasty white butt on this one.
I was also having this problem and disabling SSL didn’t work. I found the problem was because of CSF (the firewall). I had to disable passive mode, set the port range, and add the port range to csf.conf.
I added the following to /etc/lftp.conf:
set ftp:passive-mode off
set ftp:port-range 64200-64300
And I added 64200:64300 to the TCP_IN line in /etc/csf/csf.conf. So it should look something like this:
TCP_IN = “20,21,22,25,53,80,110,143,443,465,587,993,995,3306,64200:64300”
You will also need restart CSF (using ‘csf -r’)
Thanks for sharing Nick, this is probably useful for others since CSF is used pretty often.
Actually lftp issue AUTH TLS when this command is advertised by the FTP server.
- AUTH TLS is falsly advertised (very rare)
- the FTP server’s encryption setup has an error (I do have a case like this)
My vps has a working proftpd TLS setup.
