hihi, ftp newbie here, i've installed proFTP (come with rpm package from mdk 9.2)
everything looks good, installed and what not.
when i start ftp sever:
root@localhost download]# proftpd start
and to check to see if port 21 is open using nmap:
Starting nmap 3.30 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/
) at 2004-02-12 22:06 CST
Interesting ports on adsl-68-248-xxx-xxx.dsl.mdsnwi.ameritech.net (68.248.xxx.xxx):
(The 1640 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)

looks like port 21 is open for ftp... now when i ftp there:
[allen@localhost download]$ ftp 68.248.xxx.xxx
Connected to 68.248.xxx.xxx.
500 FTP server shut down (going down at Wed Feb 11 22:54:13 2004) -- please try again later
p.s: i tried the same test again by shutting down ftp sever and restart ftp sever again (wtf? using windoze attitude <shut down restart> to deal with application in linux? sorry my bad
and still getting the same can't connect msg....
if u interested at what my /etc/proftp.comf look like:
ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
to save spaces, i delete all the # lines....
thanks for your help and advise
