13.37 vsftpd issue with Explicit FTP over TLS

I am trying to configure a new Slackware64 13.37 install for Explicit FTP over TLS. I receive the following when trying to connect with FileZilla from the same LAN

Status:	Connecting to
Status:	Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:	220 Welcome to caasig FTP service.
Command:	AUTH TLS
Response:	234 Proceed with negotiation.
Status:	Initializing TLS...
Error:	GnuTLS error -12: A TLS fatal alert has been received.
Error:	Could not connect to server
My vsftpd.conf file is here
My inetd.conf file is here
My vsftpd.log file is here

Any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks to jeev on ##slackware on freenode, this is now working.

I was missing
from my vsftpd.conf. See line 132 from current/working vsftpd.conf file on pastebin

please note that I also edited from the original:
write_enable=YES (line 18)

Once I get some time over the next couple days/weeks, I will provide a full how-to for Explicit FTP over TLS using vsftpd on Slackware64 13.37
