http://forums.opensuse.org – With the default setting of the Firwall (installation CD) no ftp service will work. YaST does not do this change for you when you download ftp sevice from repository! What one has to do: Computer => YaST => Security and Users => Firewall => Interfaces eth0 is assigned to "external zone"! If you do not change this, then: => Allowed service Allow pure-ftpd (or vsftpd) (Distributions)
