My first try of Sparkylinux I picked the Enlightenment version. I've been waiting for an up to date Debian distro for that for a while now.
So far all good (though still getting quite a bit of SegFaults happening with simple things like drag and drop files and things like that, grrr).
But....I do a fair bit of internet work and use FTP and I keep getting this error when trying to connect to tried and tested sites:
"The data connection could not be established: ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server"
which all the filezilla forums suggest is all about firewalls and port forwarding. However - a concurrent fresh install of another Debian distro (#!) connects no problem (and in 15 or so years of using Filezilla I've never had to do any jiggery pokkery to get it working).
So...... I'm guessing it's something to do with the Sparky distro setup. What might be causing this? There isn't a firewall enabled as standard - what's going on?
Other than that I'm very happy with Sparky Linux so far. Good work.
