Title: ftp on 13.04
Post by: cearlp on May 17, 2013, 04:35:11 PM
Is there any setup required to run ftp on Ubuntu 13.04?
Trying to ftp to an HP laptop running 13.04 always returns an "Incorrect password for 'user' on 'ip-address'" error message even when the correct password is entered.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have Filezilla installed and it was working fine in 12.10. I just upgraded to 13.04 and now it doesn't accept the password.
