Your vsftpd.conf still has a problem. You can repost you config file or download mine.

K, here it is. Do me a favor though, just tell me where I need to make a change, by making your comment in all caps so I can see what I need to change, okay?? Thanks.


# Example config file /etc/vsftpd.conf
#
# The default compiled in settings are very paranoid. This sample file
# loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.
#
# Allow anonymous FTP?
anonymous_enable=NO
#
# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
local_enable=YES
#
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
write_enable=YES
#
# Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,
# if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)
local_umask=022
#
# Uncomment this to allow the anonymous FTP user to upload files. This only
# has an effect if the above global write enable is activated. Also, you will
# obviously need to create a directory writable by the FTP user.
#anon_upload_enable=YES
#
# Uncomment this if you want the anonymous FTP user to be able to create
# new directories.
#anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
#
# Activate directory messages - messages given to remote users when they
# go into a certain directory.
dirmessage_enable=YES
#
# Activate logging of uploads/downloads.
xferlog_enable=YES
#
# Make sure PORT transfer connections originate from port 20 (ftp-data).
connect_from_port_20=YES
#
# If you want, you can arrange for uploaded anonymous files to be owned by
# a different user. Note! Using "root" for uploaded files is not
# recommended!
#chown_uploads=YES
#chown_username=whoever
#
# You may override where the log file goes if you like. The default is shown
# below.
xferlog_file=/var/log/vsftpd.log
#
# If you want, you can have your log file in standard ftpd xferlog format
xferlog_std_format=YES
#
# You may change the default value for timing out an idle session.
idle_session_timeout=600
#
# You may change the default value for timing out a data connection.
data_connection_timeout=120
#
# It is recommended that you define on your system a unique user which the
# ftp server can use as a totally isolated and unprivileged user.
#nopriv_user=ftpsecure
#
# Enable this and the server will recognise asynchronous ABOR requests. Not
# recommended for security (the code is non-trivial). Not enabling it,
# however, may confuse older FTP clients.
#async_abor_enable=YES
#
# By default the server will pretend to allow ASCII mode but in fact ignore
# the request. Turn on the below options to have the server actually do ASCII
# mangling on files when in ASCII mode.
# Beware that turning on ascii_download_enable enables malicious remote parties
# to consume your I/O resources, by issuing the command "SIZE /big/file" in
# ASCII mode.
# These ASCII options are split into upload and download because you may wish
# to enable ASCII uploads (to prevent uploaded scripts etc. from breaking),
# without the DoS risk of SIZE and ASCII downloads. ASCII mangling should be
# on the client anyway..
#ascii_upload_enable=YES
#ascii_download_enable=YES
#
# You may fully customise the login banner string:
#ftpd_banner=Welcome to blah FTP service.
#
# You may specify a file of disallowed anonymous e-mail addresses. Apparently
# useful for combatting certain DoS attacks.
#deny_email_enable=YES
# (default follows)
#banned_email_file=/etc/vsftpd.banned_emails
#
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
#chroot_list_enable=YES
# (default follows)
#chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list
#
# You may activate the "-R" option to the builtin ls. This is disabled by
# default to avoid remote users being able to cause excessive I/O on large
# sites. However, some broken FTP clients such as "ncftp" and "mirror" assume
# the presence of the "-R" option, so there is a strong case for enabling it.
#ls_recurse_enable=YES
#
pam_service_name=vsftpd
userlist_enable=YES
#
#enable for standalone mode
#
listen=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES

Same problem. I don't know what the problem is. How can this be so hard?? I just don't get it. It would seem as though the system doesn't either know where the config file is or something. I don't know

root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]# vsftpd stop
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot open specified config file
[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]# vsftpd stop
500 OOPS: vsftpd: cannot open specified config file
[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]# ftp
ftp> open
(to) 10.0.0.20
ftp: connect: Connection refused
ftp>

It's just very futsy.
The config file should be put in /etc/vsftpd. The file has to end with *.conf extension.
Try to start it manually
/usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftd/vsftpd.conf

The file is there, man. It just won't start.

[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]# ls
vsftpd.conf
[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]# pwd
/etc/vsftpd
[root@ASUSA7V266-E vsftpd]#

What is the permissions on the file.
What message do you get with
/usr/sbin/vsftpd /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf;

And that's from your file!!

Tell, you what, do you want to give me a call about this? It might make this easier.
