So I used the Noob Guide to Enabling FTP and am unable to FTP into OMV 5.05 at all. From every login attempted within my network, I get a connection refused error. I've reinstalled, and reconfigured OMV at least 8 times in the past 14 days, with no luck getting FTP to work with any documented configuration I could find.
I -am- using it as a VM, running on top of Hyper-V 2019 Server (Gen1, 16Gb ram, 4 vcpu) with multiple other VM's operating just fine.
Is it possible this is a result of using 5.05? I noticed in the OMV-Version selection for this thread that it says 5.x is in beta, but 4.x is current release. When I double checked the sourceforge download links, 5.05 is not listed as beta.
I was able to get CIFS/SMB to work, and it was accessible from my windows laptops, but I noticed that any subfolders I created, I couldn't delete. I had to search for instructions how to delete from the console, which took me close to half hour. I have near zero experience with anything linux based, so everything I've tried has come form these forums for instructions, and I've made sure to double check absolutely everything as I do them. I was told that OMV would be one of the easiest and fastest NAS setups I could use, with very low resource requirements, but so far it's been nothing but frustration for me
Even though I have CIFS/SMB working, I prefer to transfer my project files on my lan by FTP if I can because of the much lower overhead, and faster transfer times for 4-10GB sized files. Security is not an issue because this server is not accessible outside my LAN in any fashion.
Any ideas for me?
(unrelated: I'm also getting forum errors trying to set the Thread OMV-Version to OMV 5.x
The server encountered an unresolvable problem, please try again later.
