Proftpd 421 Service not available, remote server closed connection
the only thing i found on the web was that a possible hostname was bad. but my hostname works fine. my telnet works also, but
proftpd produces this 421 Service Error via command line.
ex: ftp example.com
Connected to example.com
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
I am not an expert with the proftpd.conf file but here is
what i have now, most settings are default.
