ftp ft.com works but not with WS_FTP PRO


Hi.
I just installed the proftpd server on my linux machine.

I can type ftp ft.com with telnet and login but when I try connecting using my WS_FTP PRO program it just says connection reset.

I was trying to figure this out myself. I've been working on it for a few days.

I'm hoping you can shed some light on this for me.
ThankYou.
Dave.

Have you tried playing with the active/passive settings in WS_FTP? This is sometimes an issue with firewalled sites.

Hi. Yhanks for your response. I tried changing the active/passive setting no change.

Here is my proftpd.conf file
# 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 "www.myserver.com"
ServerType standalone
DefaultServer on

# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port 21
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
Umask 022

# 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)
MaxInstances 30

# Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
User root
Group root

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /usr/local/private>
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>
# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories.
<Anonymous ~ftp>
User ftp
# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp

# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
MaxClients 25

# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
DisplayLogin welcome.msg
DisplayFirstChdir .message
# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot

<Limit WRITE>
DenyAll
</Limit>

AccessDenyMsg you didn't do good.

Any idea why I can login on using telnet(ftp www.myserver.com) but I can't use my WS_FTP program?
Thanks.
Dave

Any ideas?
I just installed proftpd.
It is strange. I can login to my server with secure crt.
type ftp myserver.com
My username and password and it works.
When I try to use my WS_FTP program it just don't work.
Anyone have this happen before or have any ideas what I might can do to check it.
Thanks.
dave.
