Proftp does not connect
I followed the tutorial on the site for installing the ProFTP server on my mandrake 10.1 linux.
After installing I am getting error saying:
Connected to 192.168.1.2.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection.
When I checked the logs, I could see :
Failed binding to 0.0.0.0, port 21: Address already in use
Check the ServerType directive to ensure you are configured correctly.
I have only copied the basic.conf to proftp.conf file so it has all the default setting.
Please help me to identify the problem.
I had to restart my linux box. After restart I could start the FTP server.
I am still wondering why it did not work before re-starting. It is definitely not recommended to restart the server to start the FTP service.
Any idea why it did not work before?
