I'm a noob, so please be gentle....

I've got Filezilla running (bog standard install).... I've downloaded etc.tar and renamed it to 'u' and put copies in what I think are the right places (home dir for anonymous user, root, HAH subdir....) but I keep getting...

Hi EJ,

Welcome to the HAH forums, we all start somewhere, I bricked my first Livebox and had to buy a new one, so I imagine how I felt when I had to ask for help?!

So, just to check what you've done :-

1. You've installed FileZilla Server

2. You've setup the user anonymous

3. You've setup a shared folder, (this is a folder on your PC/laptop with the IP address, you should copy the renamed file into it)


Your log looks good, it just can't find the 'u' file, make sure it's in the shared folder,

Thanks for the welcome.... enjoying the work indoors on this hot, sweaty day!!  Might've been the three small innies that caused the mental block earlier... I blame the water myself....
