Hi All,

Hope this is the right place to ask for help....
I have a Virtual private server (VPS) through a webhost for a test application. The VPS is running Fedora core 5 and has proftp installed, but it doesn't run. First I tried the original /etc/proftpd.conf file but it gave me same errors, then I also used the "Basic" config file from the site to try it, but no luck. The basic config file is : http://www.proftpd.org/docs/configs/basic.conf

I'm trying to login as root and i get:

F:\Documents and Settings\>ftp
Connected to .
220 FTP Server ready.
User (IP addresnone)): root
331 Password required for root.
Password:
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.

I have tried both the standalone and the inetd server option but can't get it to work.
The error I get with the inetd server option is:

[root@host]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start
Starting proftpd: host - fatal: Socket operation on non-socket
[FAILED]

With this option I dont get anything in the messages file.

The other error happens with the standalone option and logs in messages too:

[root@host]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start
Starting proftpd: [ OK ]
[root@host]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd status
proftpd dead but subsys locked
(I also deleted the lock file : /var/lock/subsys/proftpd , but still no luck)

Jul 3 01:29:05 host proftpd[15433]: host - Failed binding to 0.0.0.0, port 21: Address already in use
Jul 3 01:29:05 host proftpd[15433]: host - Check the ServerType directive to ensure you are configured correctly.

It appears that with this option its complaining about port21 in use, and infact it is, by xinetd, see the netstat output below:

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:21 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 3446/xinetd
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 12144/sshd
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 3446/xinetd

Do I need to kill xinetd to run proftp..?? doesn't sound like a very logical thing to do.....

I'm completely confused, can someone please help me in the right direction, I'm not new to unix but am new to linux (which shouldn't matter too much) and I didn't think proftp would be that hard to configure. I'm sure I'm missing something, but can't seem to figure out.

Don't know if its relevant but the server was also running the sftp-server process (/usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server) which I killed just to make sure that it wasn't conflicting with proftp, still nothing. BTW, before killing the process I did try a shell based sftp through putty and it worked fine..?? my ultimate goal is to configure proftp so that it can be used with the WS_FTP client...

Thanks much!!
