I have been wearing out the usb connector. I thought it would be nice to use ftp.

Can anyone tell me how to add a welcome message or defeat the REQUIRED welcome screen in filezilla? Filezilla just times out.

perhaps you could include a screen capture of what your talking about
i cant seem to find anything like what your talking about when starting the filezilla ftp client

I don't have screen capture.. that I know of. But, I will explain: When I try to login with filezilla, I get connection established (at the top of filezilla) then waiting for welcome message and a time out. This happens twice (as per the re-try settings). Then it stops trying.

Take a look at the top, under Host-> username... ect. There is a scroll bar. I doubt that you ever followed the chain of events, if all of your connections are successful.

Thanks,
Steve

I had a little play.  I only entered the IP address of the WDTV and nothing else.  I got results similiar, I think, to yours.  Are you sure you've put the username and password in correctly?  ie. username=root, blank password.

If that's set correctly, I guess it could be something to do with pure-ftp on the WD TV

if your connection is hanging at waiting for the welcome message (Response:   220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd ----------)
http://imagebin.ca/view/Hxhrx4TY.html
as my picture illustrates
then you likely have an issue with passive and active mode ftp connections
use the site manager in filezilla to setup a connection to the wdtv's ftp server
and  try passive or active.  see if either work
if it does not work then you have an issue between the computer your running filezilla on and the wdtv
perhaps a router or proxy.
good luck and let us know how it goes.

thanks for the reply,

I had entered the info correctly. I still get the time out. I find I have to enter port of 23 to get a connection also still times out.

You wouldnt happen to know how to re-flash the same wdlxtv firmware would you? I cant get it to recognize the same version.

This is in reply to the "passive, active" post

I tried both and still get the same "waiting for welcome message". I think this relates to NFS not working (WDTV side). Do you know anything about DD-wrt equipped routers (AP)? I'm not too bad with this stuff, but the router never shows an active client for the WDTV (even when DHCP is in use and it shows as a client). Everyone/everything always showed until I started trying to connect the WDTV to the network. I can telnet into the WDTV although I'm not good enough w/linux to check things... only cd / and ls commands. I have run mount -t and showmounts -e and everything "appears" OK. I have no trouble using Ubuntu to access the NFS share (both R and W).

Can you offer any help?

Thanks,
Steve

In the filezilla client you can select the text in the status window (or whatever it's called), right click and do 'copy to clipboard' - please post the contents here.

Also, have you tried doing a manual ftp from the Windows command line?

Mr. Lazy,

Status:   Connecting to 192.168.1.151:23...
Status:   Connection established, waiting for welcome message...

Those are the only lines I get. That was w/Passive. Same with active. I'm sorry, but I do not know how to use command line FTP. I had already looked into it. I only got "connection refused". I assumed I had done something wrong.

steve:
now your just confusing me.
nfs has absolutely nothing to do with this ftp issue
try using the commandline version of ftp from windows
>ftp root@ip-of-wdtv
root for the login
no password ... just hit enter
perhaps there will be some output from that which might shed some information
now if you want to REFLASH your wdtv then
all you need to do is download the new/same firmware
reformat the usb drive
extract the firmware to the usb drive
edit the wdtv.ver file to a to a higher firmware revision number and save the file
safely remove the usb drive and connect it to the wdtv
POWER on the wdtv by plugging it in
and it will flash the new firmware. because it THINKS its a NEW version.

Fishbowls,

This CLI was all done from a start/run/cmd/enter COMMAND LINE. I had to type "quit" to get out of FTP.

I tried as you said "ftp root@192.168.1.151", returned "unknown host". Then tried "ftp root@192.168.1.151:23", returned "unknown host". Tried filezilla again with the same "time out" response.

then I tried filezilla on the NAS at 192.168.1.150 and all went well. Then tried command line on NAS, returned "unknown host". I must be doing something wrong in CLI format

well thats that
there is somethin not right with your purftpd
which should just be running all by itself in a default flash
perhaps its time to investigate a bad flash
and reflash
personally i use zorranders firmware so flashing isnt such a hassle.
regardless of which you use.
i think it might be time to try a reflash.
see if anyone else chimes in with another answer.
good luck and ill keep an eye out for your progress ;)
EDIT: perhaps if your running optware you might want to
ipkg update
ipkg install pure-ftpd
and reboot and see if pure-ftpd works then

I used to be able to ftp into my wdtv with flashget or filezilla, I can't anymore and not sure why.

I can in Internet Explorer;
ftp://root@<ip-of-wdtv>
that works fine.

I also can get in with FireFTP in firefox.
FireFTP works quite well, worth installing and trying, it may work for you too.

cheers and good luck!
You laugh because Iím different, I laugh because youíre all the same.

Rev Drew,

I crashed two WDTVs before I read your post. I had help getting both running ext3. I just tried filezilla with the same time out. I then tried your method using Firefox, and it works. I'm still having the same problem with the NFS shares though.

Thanks again,
Steve

FTP clients like filezilla need some settings including the character set set correctly so in addition to setting port 21? and logon and passive/active you need to look at the character set settings.

I had to change from UTF-8 to DOS or vice versa before I could get past the welcome screen.

So try that before reflashing the Firmware.
