I just installed a new Fedora 8 server with the ProFTPD 1.3.1 from the Fedora Package Manager.

I copied the previous proftpd.conf that I have been using for years on the old server with no trouble. It includes the following lines:

Order Allow,Deny
# allow connect only from local network
Allow from 192.168.0.
Allow from
# Jim
Allow from 71.93.,71.92.
Deny from all

This used to work fine, and allowed anyone on the local network (192.168.0.*) to connect. However after setting up the new system, users could not log in from the local network and it logged the following error:

Jan 15 21:16:55 myserver.mydomain.com proftpd[2778] myserver.mydomain.com (::ffff:[::ffff:]): Connection from ::ffff: [::ffff:] denied.

I was able to do a partial workaround by specifying all the individual IP addresses:

Allow from
Allow from
Allow from
Allow from

This allows the individual IP addresses to connect, but why doesn't "Allow from 192.168.0." work any more? This seems very strange.
