Since I couldn't get proftpd running (a problem with compiling on 2.6.24, as I've googled), I've tried installing vsftpd according to the howto on opensuse.org. After I start xinetd and I try to do ftp localhost I get this, while logging on as anonymous:
And when I'm trying to log in as a normal system user I get this:
Connected to localhost.
220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5)
Name (localhost:lordmorgul): ftp
331 Please specify the password.
230 Login successful.
EPSV/EPRT on IPv4 off.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection.
I've got no idea what to do with it. Help, please, I need it running before tuesday...
Oh, well, never mind, I managed to install a new snapshot of proftpd from source. Though I'm also having problems with it... I can log in from the console, but not from my browser - when I type ftp://localhost in the address bar it gives me 404, same goes for external connections - even though noip and port forwarding are ok.
OK, so vsftpd is working, but only if... I don't have a /etc/vsftpd.conf. So I can't change any settings. That is so weird. And by mistake i edited the /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf, so I don't even have the default file. Does anyone know, where does it read the current configuration from?
OK, I got it working somehow, I've improvised creating a new /etc/vsftpd.conf. But even though I've put local_enable=YES, I can't log in as a local user. After typing the password the server replies 530 Login incorrect.. Any ideas?
