Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use. It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login. It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.
ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
# Allow FTP resuming.
# Remember to set to off if you have an incoming ftp for upload.
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
# Needed for NIS.
# Default root can be used to put users in a chroot environment.
# As an example if you have a user foo and you want to put foo in /home/foo
# chroot environment you would do this:
# DefaultRoot /home/foo foo
Now, I've changed PersistentPasswd to on and off to no avail. I've also changed AuthPAMAuthoritative to on/off to no avail.
Basically, I can't log into the damn ftp server with any account.
I use my username with any ftp application under passive mode AND non passive and the damn thing always rejects the login.
Here's the output of every attempt to log in:
Looking up 127.0.0.1
Connected to 127.0.0.1:21
220 ProFTPD 1.2.7 Server (ProFTPD Default Installation) [www2.mysite.net]
331 Password required for bznutz.
530 Login incorrect.
What gives? I've checked the /etc/pam.d/ftp file and it seems kosher. I've checked the /etc/passwd file and it seems kosher.
I've checked everything that the documentation has directed me too and I can't make it work.
The only fishy thing I can think of is that when trying to change my account password via the passwd command, I get this output:
Changing password for user bznutz.
Changing password for bznutz
(current) UNIX password:
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
What in the Hell is going on?
Please help, I really need this ftp to be up so I can update my website while I'm out of town.
Disconnecting from site 127.0.0.1
i know when i make a new user account on my server (also proftpd) when i try to log in it fails, but when i change the password, and then try again it works, and also i have to make use the ftpclient is not using passive mode...did you try both these options?
