No firewall.

Also, I don't have proftpd in either of those folders, but I do have it in /usr/local/libexec/proftpd
I ran /usr/local/libexec/proftpd restart, and no errors.

I am running standalone. I haven't used inetd ever.

Also note that I seem to be listening on port 22:
tcp4 0 0 *.22 *.* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 *.22 *.* LISTEN


Thanks for your help on all of this, btw

Do you have this is in your proftpd conf file:

Code:
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port				21
or this:

Code:
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port				22
Port 22 is usually used by sshd. If you are running on port 22, are you sure that smartftp is trying to connect on 22? Port 21 is the default port, so if you don't specify otherwise, most programs go for 21, which would return a connection refused if the server is running on port 22.

Just to be certain, make sure there is a /var/run/proftpd directory with a proftpd.scoreboard file in it.

Oops, my bad. I thought it was port 22. Anyway, the proftpd.conf file has port 21 in it, and I don't have port 21 open. So yeah... I guess ProFTPd isn't running.... yes?

I guess that means I have a whole different problem on my hands!

Yes, it does. As I said, do you have a /var/run/proftpd directory with a proftpd.scoreboard file in? This often poses a problem with new installations.

I don't have that directory, no. Also, I don't have a proftpd.scoreboard file anywhere, either.

Good, this is our problem then. Try this:

Code:
Su root
mkdir /var/run/proftpd
Then run /usr/local/libexec/proftpd, try to connect and see what happens.
