    ProFTPD handles all FTP commands as uppercase, no matter what the client
    sends (i.e. it will convert the command into uppercase before processing
    it). What FTP client are you using? What does proftpd debug logging
    (debug level 5 or higher) show for the case where "quit" is entered by the
    user?

  2. Re: [Proftpd-user] Command Aliasing?

    TJ, thanks, you are right. I tried an FTP client from windows, and the
    uppercase "QUIT" went fine. The error was on our linux standard FTP
    client.

    Thank you!
    Scott

    What was the error/issue, exactly? I've never had an issue with the Linux
    command-line `ftp' client sending a QUIT command, that proftpd handles
    properly, when the user types "quit" at the ftp> prompt.

    Cheers,
