i just installed proftpd like 10 times an i always get connection refused. i even switched to mand. to get it to work and still it says connection refused when i try to connect to my lan ip. Does any 1 kno anything?
You need to configure your /etc/proftpd.conf file, and actually, for the most part, it just might work out of the box.
Post up yours so we can see if there is anything wrong. Also, give us some info on your system.
First try ftping to the box from the box by opening up a console and typing:
That will tell you whether it's even running or not. If not, you've got to read your documentation on how to start it, or just try:
Notice the location, something like /sbin/proftpd then:
/sbin/proftpd (as root)
ok i can somewhat see what your trying to do, so if you did indeed make an account for the ftp server then you can try to type "ftp" and prompt
and then type "open 127.0.0.1" or "open <your-external-ip-here>
and then log in with the username and password and see if it works?
# 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.
# 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/tyler
