I have recently bought a zaurus SL-C3000.

I can telnet to my zaurus from my windows XP box (using cygnus shell) and browse the zaurus directories.

However, ftp from the windows box does not work. I try the following:-

ftp 192.168.129.201

and get the following:-

Connected to 192.168.129.201
Connection closed by remote host.

It seems that the connection is initially established but then the zaurus closes the connection.

I saw someone else posted the same problem in another group but there was no solution posted.

Anyone help?

thanks,

MickH

If you are using the default sharp rom, they don;t use ftp for syncing, so I doubt that ftp would work.
But try ftp'ing to port 4242

If you do not find FTP on the Zaurus, you need to install an FTP server (since you are FTP'ing your Zaurus) on the Z.

Pure-FTPD is one free FTP server which works fine for me on my C1000.
There are others too - just google it.

Don't use ftp or telnet, both of them send passwords as plain text! Use ssh and sftp/scp instead.

My question is about ftp. If I wanted to use ssh/scp I would. (I have no passwords on my zaurus anyway so sending them as plain text does not matter!).

There is no ftp client/server installed on the SL-C models by default from Sharp so you will need to install one. As ssh is more secure (and at least for the packages I've used on the Z faster) I recomend it even if you don't have passwords
