I get this error when I try to run my vsftpd server

500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv4 socket

ftp localhost command also gives me same error

Is vsftpd running?

netstat -l (lowercase L)

Have you cut off access to ftp through a firewall or tcpwrappers?

Hello,

I've had a similar problem. Actually I've forgotten to remove this line in my vsftpd.conf :
listen=YES

Yes, in the INSTALL file they say to write down this line in configuration file (for testing in standalone mode), but didn't say to remove it when using inetd; now I think it's obvious

Both Inetd and vsftpd were trying to listen on the same port, hence the error message.

Try to remove or comment out this line
