vsftpd ssl/tls

I'm trying to setup vsftpd to use ssl/tls. I verified that vsftpd was working beforehand. I then made my changes to vsftpd.conf.

The directives I added/edited were as follows:


I also set my rsa cert file.

The daemon starts fine, but I can not connect to it. I tried Konqueror and FileZilla.

In Konqueror, I just type in, it brings up the login box, I attempt to login, and it tells me that the login requires encryption. So it obviouslly isn't trying to encrypt the login. Is this because of the URL? I tried using s, and it said it had problems talking to SSH.

In FileZilla, I added a site with information such as it using TLS, the domain name, etc. It's feedback thing said that it logged in, and was requesting a directory listing, but it just hangs there.

At this point, I'm not sure if it's a client or a server problem. I'm lost.

FTP with SSL/TSL uses the ftps:// prefix, SFTP is something else (uses SSH). You should try the url as ftps://
Also make sure your client supports SSL/TLS. I know gFTP does, not sure about Konqueror.

You may also need to use passive mode depending on how the vsftp daemon is set up. Are you getting prompted for a certificate when you try to connect with filezilla or other ftps software?
