FTP through a second NIC and a local IP is not working

FTP through a second NIC and a local IP is not working

Hi there,

I have two servers within the DC connected together using their second NIC adapters with a crossover ethernet cable. I have assigned two static and local IPs on the two servers and I want to send backups from the DirectAdmin Webserver to the other one.

Unfortunately the scheduled backup is not working and even when I try to backup manually some account(s) through FTP is not working too. After a few minutes I receive the following error message on the massaging system of DA

Quote:

Subject: An error occurred during the backup. Today at 18:58
User angelos has been backed up.
Could not connect to 10.9.9.3 — try again later: Connection timed out.

ncftpput: cannot open 10.9.9.3: could not connect to remote host, but can try again.


I am trying for several days to find a solution but I can’t. I checked the firewall etc, but it is not blocked by the firewall. I start thinking if I should do something in order to declare the other IP in DirectAdmin, because I have the feeling that it can’t find the route (second NIC) to send the backup through FTP.

Please help…
