I'm trying to setup a private FTP Server on a LAN at home. But I seem to have problem getting Proftpd working properly: I've checked the file called proftpd.conf
in the /etc
directory and have compared it to some sample configuration files I've downloaded Proftpd's web site.
BTW: Here's the setup; I have two machines (with no firewall enabled) connected to each other via a Layer 2 Ethernet Switch (This switch does not have firewalling capabilities BTW).
I've done a ping test from both machines and they both work A-OK. But went I try to ftp to the machine with proftpd on it, it doesn't work.
Here's what typed in from the client-side:
And here's the error/message that it "spat out""
Connected to 192.168.100.1.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
BTW: I have typed in proftpd at the console of where I want to run the FTP server from.
Thanks very much, X11.
