    How to Fix " KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type"

    These are some of the errors which I came across while working on FTP server along with the solutions.

    Error 1:KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type
    # ftp
    Connected to
    220 (vsFTPd 2.0.1)
    KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type

    Solution:# which ftp

    Make an alias entry for ftp
    # alias ftp='/usr/bin/ftp'
    To make the change permanent i.e.even after restart
    # vi /root/.bashrc
    alias ftp='/usr/bin/ftp'

    Error 2:550 Create directory operation failed

    Make sure the location where the user is trying to create a file or directory is having write permission for that user. 

    This error simply means the user is not permitted to create any file on the given location.
