We have installed the WCS software and it grabbed port 21 in addition to the tftp port. When, we tried to ftp into this box, we could not get authenticated with either local or tacacs credentials. Does anybody happen to know where these credentials are set?

thanks for your response...Unfortunately, I was not the one who installed the WCS, so I would not have the first hand knowledge about the install phase..Are u saying that during the WCS install, the system prompts u to assign FTP & TFTP passwords and the user-id? Thanks again..

If this is on a Linux WCS box, take a look at


It has some variables that can be configured

look around line 109
