vsFTPd - Changing folders and Port Connection

Hi everybody!!!

Two things IŽd like to know about using vsFTPd...

The first thing is about security... I donŽt want to use the regular 21st port all ftp connections use. IŽd like to specify a unique port and open that port on my firewall for incoming connections.

The scond thing is that IŽd like to change the file folder. For example... Looks to me everything is inside /var/ftp/pub... I would like to change that.

Can these be done?
Thanks a lot!!!
