Debian/GPROFTPD won't allow TLS connections


Hey everyone, I've set up GPROFTPD on Debian 5 x64, and can connect just fine using standard FTP.

I then followed the steps at http://www.unixmen.com/linux-tutoria...-tls-on-ubuntu to add TLS, and restarted the server.


Trying to connect via TSL/SSL returns the following:

Quote:
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220 MyFTP
Command: AUTH TLS
Response: 500 AUTH not understood
Command: AUTH SSL
Response: 500 AUTH not understood
Error: Critical error
Error: Could not connect to server

Any ideas?

In case anyone is having the same problem:

I finally got it working by adding 'LoadModule mod_tls.c' to the top of proftpd.conf.
