CentOS 5 Server :: Proftpd 530 Login Failed?

Jan 25, 2009

I'm having quite a hassle getting proftpd to work.

My setup:

- CentOS 5 (latest version)
- ProFTPD Version: 1.3.1 (stable)

Want do I want:

A simple FTP server which allows me to acces the /var/www/html directory to upload new files for my apache webserver.

What are my problems:

When trying to login it says the following:

[root@ICT2-Gateway ~]# ftp
Connected to
220 FTP Server ready.
500 AUTH not understood


As you can see this has nothing to do with faulty firewall settings since i'm only trying this locally. Futhermore the password is 100% correct (and keyboard layout).

Since I've changed alot in my config file it thought it's not worth mentioning here, I'm reverting back to default.

CentOS 5 Server :: Service Not Starting On Bootup?

Jul 19, 2010

I have a service I've made an init script for, and it's added to chkconfig, which shows it "on" in all the correct runlevels. When I start or stop this service using the "service" command all is fine, but it does not start on it's own at bootup. I am currently at a loss to determine why it is not starting. Here is the script:

# chkconfig: 2345 95 10

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Log In With Proftpd. Connects But Won't Authenticate?

May 16, 2010

I am still pretty new to centos, and I am having some trouble figuring out why after installing proftpd I can't log in. I am running Centos 5.4 i386. I have gone through and installed the rpm forge and updated yum. I have installed proftpd.i386 0:1.3.2-1.el5.rf With a user name I know works through SSH I am unable to connect to the server on port 21. It makes a connection, but the authentication fails saying that the user name and or password is incorrect.

I opened port 21 to my server on my router, and Just for testing, I have disabled iptables. In the /var/log/secure log I find the following error when I try to connect. [ps: I changed the user name in the log to USERNAME to avoid giving out my id. Also changed the ip I am connecting from to MY_IP_ADDRESS]

May 15 22:43:38 webserver proftpd: pam_unix(proftpd:session): session opened for user USERNAME by (uid=0)

Server :: LFTP Can't Connect To Proftpd Server (hangs)

Nov 28, 2010

I'm using ProFTPd as my FTP server on a CentOS 5 box. Since updating to version 1.3.3c, I seem to have very specific problems. Connections work quite fine with about any FTP client out there, including the basic ftp command from the Linux prompt. However, when trying to connect to that server with LFTP, things go wrong. When connecting, all I get is [Connecting] then [Logging in...] and then nothing. I have to add that SSL is forced off in lftp.conf (I read it could be the problem). I sometimes get a counter for reconnection, but it never works.

The command I use in lftp is : open -u <user>,<pass> <server_ip>, the ls for lftp to establish the connection. I don't see anything at all in the server's log. I just see "FTP session opened" and "FTP session closed" in /var/log/messages" and nothing in /var/log/secure. I can give you a strace if needed. Please keep in mind that the server WORKS with anything but LFTP and NCFTP (which I also tried).

Aug 24, 2010

I am pretty new to Linux and I want to start a ftp server with proftpd. Well sofar I have made one but there is one problem when I login with windows, the computer don't ask for a username and password. Instead he just show some folders from my home directory.

I have used the standard proftpd config file, and tried to change some things with online tutorials but non of them worked with windows (only for linux ftp connections). Can some of you refer me to a good tutorial for a multi user ftp linux server or explane me what to do?

Server :: Proftpd Always Responds With 530 (slackware)?

Jul 20, 2010

I followed this tutorial trying to set up proftpd. I'm using Slackware 13.1, but I had assumed most of the tutorial was all relevant still.Using the default proftpd.conf file, I was able to do anonymous login, but I was hoping to use the conf file in the tutorial to only allow certain users, so it currently looks like this:Quote:

# To really apply changes reload proftpd after modifications.

Server :: ProFTPd Warning: Can't Start

Feb 1, 2011

I run Debian 5 64-bit machine with 2 IP-addresses. I installed ProFTPd through init.d instead of standalone but when I start it, it gives the following error:

ProFTPd warning: cannot start neither in standalone nor in inetd/xinetd mode. Check your configuration.
If I select standalone as servertype through the config, it works good.

Previously, I had this same machine on the same OS with 1 IP-address. I installed ProFTPd and it worked well with init.d . Maybe the 2nd IP is causing it? How can I make it work through init.d without having this error?

Server :: Proftpd Getting 550 Permission Denied

Jun 16, 2010

I installed proftpd on a new CentOS 5 server, yet when FTPing in (I can log in fine), the files and directories do not list and I get a "550 filename: Permission denied" error each time I try to "put" or "get" a file (I can tell that the file is there, though, because if I try to access a non-existent file, I get a "No such file or directory error" instead of the permission denied error).

Server :: Proftpd - MaxStoreFileSize Not Working?

Dec 27, 2010

According cu proftpd documentation this should limit upload file size to 5 MBytes to everyone excepting user crystal which is allowed to upload 100 MBytes.

# Restrict upload to only 3 megabytes
MaxStoreFileSize 5 Mb
MaxStoreFileSize 100 Mb user crystal

My Proftpd also restricts the user crystal to 5 Mb. It seems the second line is not taken into consideration.

Server :: Stuck With Masquerading With ProFTPD Version 1.3.3e?

Jul 19, 2011

I am literally quite stuck with proftp the version being: ProFTPD Version 1.3.3e# I have the following config:


I mean would I need to logically seperate out a series of passive ports and then open them using my custom routers NAT, so each passive port goes to its own virtual host as such? Just a bit confused about what the next steps would entail I mean I don't have any firewall on my Linux box, don't see the point since I use pfSense and an IPS/IDS and it's never been hacked since!
