<planetxm> How do I use 'rpm -q' after clearing /var/cache/apt/archives/ to redownload ALL the rpms that are in the RPM database? IN other words I want to dowload all the RPMS and place them in cache gotten from a current Repositiory then reupload all those rpms to my own repositiory... ( incase the original repository I hace no control over goes down. ) I am using APT-GET by the way
<planetxm> OK how do I rebuild my /var/apt/cache dir is I have cleared it out, based on what I CURRENTY have installed?
<GeoRG2Eus> Ahhhh!

<llandru> anyone running vsftp - i need some help
<magikman> what do you need help with?
<magikman> i am about to exit
<llandru> i have vsftp up and running and can ftp to it on teh machine where it is running, and do ls
<magikman> and?
<llandru> but when i try and ls from anotther machine on the network, it times out
<magikman> are you using passive or active mode?
<llandru> in passive it times out also
<magikman> so you are using active.
<magikman> the data port is being blocked by something
<llandru> i switch to passive and it still times out
<magikman> if you are using port 21 for the command/listening port, 20 also needs to be open.
<magikman> a firewall is blocking the data
<llandru> ok, ill look at SELinux now
<llandru> amazing. i just set 20:tcp in selinux, and it changed the entry to 'ftp-data:tcp' wtf?
<magikman> because that's the default ftp-data port
<magikman> :)
<llandru> still no ls from other machine, logs in fine, can do pwd fine.
<magikman> something is blocking the connection somewhere
<magikman> check your vsftpd.log just to be sure
<llandru> ok thanks...
<magikman> but if you can access it via localhost, but not remote, something is blocking it.
<llandru> but what?
<llandru> i shouldnt be able to pwd
<magikman> do you have a firewall between the machines you are using?
<llandru> yes
<magikman> check its logs
<llandru> thanks again...
<magikman> np
