Unhappy VSFTP Unrecognised Variable?


I have been working on vsFTP for the last two days and finially found the error I was looking for. I am using Redhat Linux 9.0 and the version of vsFTP that came with Redhat. Taking the original vsftpd.conf file and adding a single line "cmds_allowed=QUIT," I recieve an error stating that it is unrecognised. Taking that line out allows the FTP to function correctly. The exact wording of the error is as follows:

500 OOPS: unrecognised variable in config file

cmds_allowed=QUIT,
Is ',' a typo or are there other commands that you are allowing?
Try removing the ',' and see what happens.

Sorry, that was a typo on my part. That comma isn't in the code.
