    Lost ability to connect via FileZilla

    I'm putting this in the newbie section because I had to do something so stupid and basic to cause this, but I'm wondering what. I'm recreating every step I took to see who can tell me what dumbass thing I did wrong.

    I've been attempting to ftp Alpha's All-in-One (AIO) utilities to my newly created /tivo-bin directory.

    Because the HDVR2 was read-only, following someone's instructions, I had to do this via TeraTermPro to make it writable:

    cd /tivo-bin
    mount -o remount,rw /


    That seemed to go fine. Then I opened FileZilla and attempted to xfer the AIO file (in binary mode). The progress bar on the bottom showed the progress did complete. I closed down FZ then did an ls in /tivo-bin using TeraTerm. Nothing showed, so the file wasn't there for some reason. It didn't appear to xfer at all.

    So, I close down TT and reopen FileZilla to try again, but this time FZ couldn't connect. Every time I try, I get:

    Timeout detected!
    Unable to connect!
    I can use TT to get a bash prompt and all, but I can't connect via FZ to xfer files. Obviously something's wrong. Can someone tell me where I messed up? Maybe it's this nasty head cold and all that's got me spacey.

    Obviously this problem isn't directly attributed to FileZilla, because when I attempt to enter my TIVO's IP # in my browser's URL window by typing ftp://XXX.XXX.X.XXX, I can't get in that way either even just to look at things.

    Is the ftp daemon running anymore?

    Have you tried rebooting?

    I'm going to check that, JJ. No, I didn't reboot. Maybe dumbass me should have done that first. I'll give that a try and see what happens.

    Reboot didn't work. I'll check the ftp daemon.

    Is that a dump of ps?? Because if it is...there are several things wrong, not least of which is that rc.sysinit.author and callfixsub seem hung, and there are a couple of sleep processes running for a long time, and...could you post your .author file?

    Um...could you be more specific? You do have bash access, right? What happens when you try "cat /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author"?

    Damn! One frickin' dot out of place and the damn thing won't let me in! Must these things be so picky?

    I swear it, this head cold has me in the clouds more than I usually am.

    Anyway, here it is, Chris:

    tivo:/var/tmp$ cat /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.author
    #!/bin/bash
    date>>/var/hack/log/hackinit.log

    #Enviroment Variables
    export PATH=/sbin:/bin:/tivobin:/busybox:/tvbin:.
    export TIVO_ROOT=
    export MFS_DEVICE=/dev/hda10
    export IGNOREEOF=1000
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/lib/modules
    export TERM=xterm
    export PS1='\h:\w$ '

    #Start BASH
    /bin/bash</dev/ttyS2&>/dev/ttyS2&

    #Setup HOSTNAME
    /bin/hostname tivo

    #Load telnet daemon and ftp dameon
    tnlited 23 /bin/bash -login &
    tivoftpd
    cd /var/mfs_ftp
    /var/mfs_ftp/mfs_ftp.tcl &
    cd /

    #Load tivoweb
    /usr/tivoweb-tcl/tivoweb


    #Load vserver for TyShow to play streams
    /usr/vserver &

    #Load No PPV to remove PPV Flags
    sleep 360
    echo "Calling Noppv"
    /usr/scripts/callnoppv.tcl &

    sleep 300
    /usr/scripts/callfixsub.sh /usr/scripts &
    tivo:/var/tmp$

    Hmmm...now it seems to work. Go figure!

    Now I just have to find the easiest way to edit my rc.sysinit.author file.

    Do you recommend

    vi rc.sysinit.author

    as being the best way to do it?

    If you're comfortable with vi, absolutely.

    Well, it's been a while since I used it. Several folks have recommended it. As long as it does the trick and dummy me doesn't mess up his TIVO!
