Description Need Real Name 2002-10-18 10:49:22 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; MSNATLAS01.CZ; 
(R1 1.1))

Description of problem:
When I use the network boot disk and its FTP feuture in text mode (I didn't 
type text but it runs into text mode by itself) to install RH 8.0. After it 
gets address from DHCP and I giv to it an FTP server name and directory for 
example and rh8 it tryes to get files from address instead of

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from disk and run installation (for me it runs text mode)
2.when you are asked then choose FTP option, giv it your FTP server name or 
address and directory
3.On the second console it shows that wrong address with too many slashes

Actual Results:  Dialog with text that installation image could not be copied

Expected Results:  Continuing of installation process

Additional info:

I have used a workaround that i runs the HTTP server for the same sources from 
FTP and used HTTP installation.

The address in the log console is just formatted wrong - ftp installs work fine.
Perhaps the ftp server your were trying was not accepting connections?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-10-24 07:29:40 UTC
So I can get conneted to sources by other FTP klient (Windows Commander) as 

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-24 18:18:17 UTC
What is the ftp daemon running on the ftp server?

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-11-14 09:59:58 UTC
So this thing ocurs on IIS 5.0 FTP service, PNWS - PinkNet Web Server that I 
have tested. On Linux wu-ftpd all things goes right. Maybe some other win FTP 
services doing better.

Is this a non-anonymous account that's not chrooted and not being accessed with
a relative path?
