I am not able to ftp to the server server from a client. I am using my base machine as Ubuntu 14.04 . Below is the ifconfig output:-

Now i have installed vm playes on the machine and configured RHEL 6 SErver with below configuration:-

On the server i have deployed a VM RHEL 6 with following configuration :-

Ipaddr: 192.168.122.217

While configuring the network NAT protocol was used. Help would be appreciated.

  • Please let me know if any further info is required from my side. I can ping the server from VM , can ssh as well. but cannot ftp – Raghav Chadha Jul 31 '15 at 18:40

Appears you need to install ftp. Such an insecure protocol isn't installed/enabled by default on RHEL 6.

yum install proftpd will install ftp.
