To check your ftp server is working or not just use this command
$ftp localhost

If all setting is fine then your ftp sever is ask for username and password.

This is simple step to create ftp server, for more secure and advance service just use google.


  1. I just did everything exactly that you stated above. I created a user, added it to the chroot list and tried to login via CuteFTP from outside our network to the FTP server's NAT'd address. I keep receiving the error "Login incorrect". The login info is correct. Is there anything else that we need to do? Please help!

  2. It's difficult me to understand your topology,can you explain issue in detail. However for NAT'd address, you must port forward in your NAT'd router.
