Sounds good, FYI you don't have to supply the config file if it's in the standard location

Just for troubleshooting it's easiest to make everything "standard" and vear off from there.

Cool

hmm

so i did a kill -HUP <inetdpid>

next i looked if there was anything running with ftp
ps aux | grep ftp

normally you said i only have to do that to start it with inetd but i didn't find any processes so i wasn't started, probably beceause the config i tried to use was standalone, but i dunno wich one it uses by default ...


anyhow, no server running

now # the ftp line in inetd and set /etc/proftpd.conf back to standalone


and ./proftpd -c /etc/proftpd.conf next
ftp localhost

and now i can connect !!!!!!!!


so i guess to test with the command ftp localhost you have to have set port 21


if i had tested over the internet on port 9876 i would probably never had all these problems ... so lets see if i can do that

You're welcome

FYI, unless you have a connection, if you are running in inetd, you won't see "FTP" in a ps check. That's the reason for using inetd, no need for 19000 processes running that aren't getting used, but if they need to be, it's no problem as inetd will start it. You don't even take a performance hit in fact you gain a security point

Cool

and the whole machine is a dedicated ftpserver so it don't matter that much
