gargoyle ftp login problem

Postby ericwong » Mon Jun 10, 2013 4:00 am

Hi,

I have installed 1.5.10 firmware onto my gargoyle router and I am trying to setup an ftp server on it.

I can login and write to it successfully if I allow anonymous login.

However, I am unable to login at all if I try to put in some username/password into it.

Code: Select all

Status:   Connecting to 192.168.1.1:21...
Status:   Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:   220 ftp server ready
Command:   USER test
Response:   530 Permission denied.
Error:   Could not connect to server

Status:   Connecting to 192.168.8.1:21...
Status:   Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:   220 ftp server ready
Command:   USER backup
Response:   331 Please specify the password.
Command:   PASS ********
Response:   530 Login incorrect.
Error:   Critical error
Error:   Could not connect to server


I think there is something wrong with the password saved into the router through the gargoyle admin interface but I am unable to figure out how to check or change the password using SSH/SCP or where the password file is physically located on gargoyle.

Can someone give me some pointers?

FYI, I have the same problem via SMB too.. I simply can't get in using any password configured in gargoyle.

Btw, does anyone using 1.5.10 Official build Gargoyle firmware able to login gargoyle ftp with username/password? (I am using a custom build which is equivalent to 1.5.10...)

Thanks

Yes, I can use SCP or putty to change the configuration if I know where the files are... and/or the command I need to use.
I assume you are running 1.5.10 Gargoyle firmware?

yes i am running 1.5.10 with success.

my question is are you having issues only using scp/putty? or are you having issues using as an example ftp://192.168.1.1 or filezilla? or whatever ftp program that you use?

I have no problem using scp/putty..
My only problem is using ftp when username/password is used to login. Annoymous works fine.
I use filezilla.

I believe my configuration is correct though..
The shared user I added can be found in the underlying configuration files.

Yesterday, I have tried using vsftpd on Openwrt, same revision as the one I use for Gargoyle build. Login works fine there using the root login.

On gargoyle, I can't login ftp using the root login even though I have verified that the required setting,

Code: Select all

local_enable=yes

is already in the default configuration

Can you login to ftp using root login on gargoyle?

The exact gargoyle revision I am using is

Code: Select all

Gargoyle revision 62b7660

This contains newer patches compared to the actual 1.5.10 release. However, I don't see any changes related to shared user or ftp which may be related to my problem..

You need to configure the login users for ftp on the usb_storage page. Only those users will be permitted to login -- root login is not permitted.

I did setup the ftp shared user login on the USB storage page...

I have also tested Gargoyle Official build 1.5.10 on TP-link TL-WR1043ND and I can see ftp login works fine there...

I still have no clue why my custom gargoyle build didn't work.

In case anyone is doing the same thing, when I build gargoyle 1.5.10 for rt305x, I am forced to use AA, r36469 due to this bug: https://dev.openwrt.org/ticket/13532

I believe my ftp login problem is related to the fact I am using older revision of AA while using latest gargoyle.

As this bug is fixed recently, I tried rebuilding it using latest AA, r37034 but there is some compile error and I can't build successfully. (there is still some bugs on rt305x in the latest revision, r37034)
