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.

I've just installed proftpd 1.2.9. on Fedora Core 1
I've edited the proftpd.conf file to use testuser (useradd -M testuser) and group testuser instead of group because it said that user nobody didn't exist(yet when i tried to create user nobody i couldn't because there was one.)
Then I added a file called "proftp" to /etc/xinetd.d/
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/proftpd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
I restarted xinetd then started proftpd
I then tried ftping to localhost but it tells me that
"421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection"
So after i got that i tried ftp'ing to 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.100 just to see if it would do the same, It did.
So i looked at iptables --list and it says
"ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere stat NEW tcp dpt; ftp"
From that I would figure that it would accept ftp connections.
Can anyone offer some help with this?
ProFTPD.CONF FILE BELOW
# 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 "Test Server"
# 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.
# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories. If you do not
# want anonymous users, simply delete this entire <Anonymous> section.
# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp
# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
