View Full Version : setting a user/pass for mfs_ftp ?

12-10-2008, 12:38 PM
My mfs_ftp does not have a username or password - I simply ftp to 3105 and am automatically logged in.

Unfortunately, konqueror refuses to interact with an ftp server with no username and password.

So, how can I set a user/pass for mfs_ftp ?

The simple answer is to not use konqueror!

With that said I swear MFS_FTP asks for one...

01:59:54:PM - 220 Mfs_Ftp ver 1.2.9p - {sock18} from ""
01:59:54:PM - 331 User name okay, need password.
01:59:54:PM - 230 Running in TiVo Mode.
01:59:54:PM - 200 Type set to I
01:59:54:PM - 215 UNIX
01:59:54:PM - 250 Directory change successful.

You screen doesnt look like that?

My login session looks like:

#ftp 3105
Connected to
220 Mfs_Ftp ver 1.2.9p-patchlevel-20080512 - {sock24} from ""
Name (
331 User name okay, need password.
230 Running in TiVo Mode.
Remote system type is UNIX.

Note: I just hit enter for both username and password prompts.

Basically I just need to know where the (python ?) configuration file is for mfs_ftp - I can probably figure it out from there ... although throwing me a bone with the actual config lines to look for/change would be much appreciated :)

The configuration options are inside the script itself. Look at all the "set info" lines at the start. If your initial diagnoses is accurate I think you will need to switch to another FTP client. I could be wrong and a version of MFS_FTP exists with authentication, I'm using a very old version.
