With vsftpd started, I still can't login correct via ftp.
With error of "500 OOPS:...cannot change directory..." something.

To solve this problem, "Disable SELinux protection for ftpd daemon" in "System->Security Level and Firewall->", SELinux->FTP tag,

Eclipse on FC6

It's a good news for programmer on Linux. Eclipse 3.2.0 is bundled in FC6.

If you haven't select it when installation, you can add it from "Application->Add/Remove Software->Browse->Development" and check "Eclipse". It's much more easy then before.

Install Firefox 2.0 & Flash Player plug-ins

Downloaded and installed Firefox 2.0. But it cannot be started with the following error message:

/usr/local/firefox/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directories
Then, have to install libstdc++ using the following command:

$yum install /usr/lib/

Finally, install Flash Player for Firefox. Un-luckly, both the auto and manual installation cannot work on my set. Then, searched from internet and found it work:
$ wget
$ sudo cp macromedia-i386.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
$ sudo yum install flash-plugin

Now, both Firefox and Flash Player work fine. But...actually I don't know the commands used.

Port Blocked

Double checked my web page, found that it can be reached by other PC within my router, but can't be reached from outside. Finally, found that I have to change the Port# from outside, and set my router to forward it (say 1025) to Port 80 of my server. May be the Port 80 is blocked by the ISP.

Now, my server can be reached from outside, with port 1024 specified.
Such as: http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:1024/
