Question FTP 421 error Yellow Dog Machine

Hello All,

When I first setup the ftp service on the Yellow Dog machine it worked, but for whatever reason after I rebooted the machine over the weekend it wouldn't allow anymore connections.

I have already added the /etc/pam.d/ftp file and I don't think I need a /etc/pam.d/ftpusers file because I do not want to exclude anyone.

In my seraches I have found that I may need to edit /usr/sbin/in.proftpd file, but I don't know where that would lead me since it is an executable file.

If you guys can give me some guidance I could use it.

Question fixed

I was able to figure it out

I needed this file to run /usr/sbin/in.proftpd
and I figured out it was missing: /etc/proftpd.conf

I copied over the file and got the service to run.

I seems that KERBEROS_V4 is trying also trying to run.

the error msg is:

500 AUTH not understood
KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type

I guess this is where my original problem came from.

Hope this helps somebody.
