No bios, this is a vintage Atari ST computer.  Turned out it was the IOGear wired-to-wifi adapter causing the problems.  I connected the computer directly to the router with a cat5 cable and everything works now.  :)

One last issue remains.  In my vsftpd.conf file I have the local_root set but the path has a directory with spaces in it and vsftpd won't switch to it and it dumps me in my home directory.

Code: [Select]
local_enable=YES
local_root=/mnt/windows/home/users/My FTP Files/

What is the proper way to format this line to allow the path with spaces in it?

It doesn't have any 'spaces issues'. Use back slashes like so:

Code: [Select]
/mnt/windows/home/users/My\ FTP\ Files/

Yes, I tried that of course but it dumped me to my linux home directory instead of the local_root until I took the spaces out of the pathname.

Btw, thanks for LL.  It's a great distro and am really enjoying it.  I donated $20 to the project.

Thank you timbuck2 :)

yw, maybe it was because my vsftpd local_root directory was on a windows drive.  Don't know but it's working fine now without the spaces.

I just became a LL Patreon supporter.  Hope more people learn and use this lightweight, efficient distro!
