Can't create data socket (,20): Bad file number.

Can't create data socket (,20): Bad file number.

Post by Richard Wu » Wed, 04 Feb 1998 04:00:00

I'm getting an error when I run "ls" command on our ftp server.  Some
accounts have this problem while other accounts do not.  I have check
and re-checked between a working account and a non working one and they
have are similar.  We're running Solaris x86 2.5.

The error is: Can't create data socket (,20): Bad file number.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
