Download from FTP

Hello, I'm trying to download a file from an external FTP server . It's a small .jpg file, but I've problem while trying to connect to the server.

If I use the full link I get from Filezilla: I receive this error: Download failed : Failed to lookup IP address for

If I use I receive this error: Download failed : PASS root@localhost.localdomain failed : Login incorrect.

What can I do?

Just to clarify -- is this an FTP server that you manage? Can you access it and review the logs on it?

It sounds like FileZilla isn't configured with the correct authentication information though. I don't personally use FileZilla, but you should be able to access "", and enter your login credentials.

Also, note that the user "root" generally can't log in over FTP.

Hello, first of all, thanks for the reply. I think that my question hasn't been that much clear, so I'll add few details.

I've webmin on one server. The file I want to download to my webmin server is on an another server. In this second server, I've only FTP access. I'm trying to download the file in the webmin server via the download module of webmin, where it says that I can download from http or ftp. I tried to download a file from http and it worked. Now I'm having problems (described in the previous message) when I try to download the file from my FTP server to my webmin server.

I can access to my ftp server without any problem from filezilla. The problem is downloading the file with the webmin module.
