Hi, I've been messing around to get an ftp server running. I first installed a few debian packages but then decided to compile my own pure-ftpd. But I can't start it:
pure-ftpd -e &
/www/bin/pureftpd/sbin# Unable to start a standalone server: Address already in use
Obviously, one of the first packages told inet.d to start another ftpd on all port 21 connections. Thing is, that ftpd has been removed:
telnet localhost 21
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
/usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-wrapper: Couldn't examine directory /etc/pure-ftpd/conf: No such file or directory
Connection closed by foreign host.
So, how do I make inet.d release my ftp port and leave it to my standalone pure-ftpd?
