ProFTPD and VirtualHost problems

I assume that it is possible to get ProFTPD to listen on several ports using VirtualHost.

I added these lines to a working conf:
I get this error when i try to start proftpd:
 - getaddrinfo '' error: Name or service not known
 - getaddrinfo '' error: Name or service not known
 - error: unable to determine IP address of ''
myhostname - getaddrinfo '' error: Name or service not known
myhostname - error: unable to determine IP address of ''
I have tried alot of other stuff to, but nothing seems to help.
I run it as standalone.

What have i missed!?

hmmm, it looks like it does a name lookup for I think you should use and put in your hosts file or make sure it is in DNS
