Setting up proftpd


I know I have it, how can I get it to work?


root@Snot:~# proftpd
Snot.Mucas - fatal: Socket operation on non-socket
Snot.Mucas - (Running from command line? Use `ServerType standalone' in config file!)
root@Snot:~#


Oh I'm running slack 10.0

As the error says, if you're trying to run it directly (as opposed to letting inetd start it up when needed), you need to set the ServerType option in the proftpd.conf file to 'standalone'. The entry is usually near the top of the config file.
