proftpd can't completely connect
Ok I have a linux server that has proftpd installed,

I want it setup to that I have to use 2 ipaddresses

1 for ssh only

2) for sftp only

the problem is when I ssh or sftp to one of the ipaddress #1 both the connections work (ssh & sftp)

but when I connect to the second one with either command it connects but when I enter a password it just hangs.

how do I fix this

First, you probably don't need proftpd installed. openssh-server has its own sftp server included.

Second, what distro and version do you have installed? That can make a difference in ssh's capabilities.

Third, what have you done so far to try and make this work?

ssh version
Ok I have


ssh -V
SSH Version Sun_SSH_1.0, protocol versions 1.5/2.0.

and I can't upgrade it, on my server I have


      ssh -V
OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8h 28 May 2008

when I try to run:


Connecting to
username@' password:
Permission denied, please try again.
username@'s password:

it just hangs, what can I do about it

What distribution are you running? This would be something like Debian, Redhat, CentOS, Suse, etc.

Suse like the title says
