Help Running Proftpd on FreeBSD 4.9

By randalthor ·

I have recently rented a dedicated server, which is running FreeBSD 4.9. I have been attempting to get Proftpd up and running, with no success. I have attempted to connect remotely with several FTP clients including CuteFTP Home 6.0 and WS_FTP Home 9. The error message received is a login incorrect, or that the server isn't running at all. Can anyone provide any insight on how I can get this up and running? Thanks.

How's proftd installed, hand compiled, from ports???

if from ports have you altered the /etc/rc.conf so it calls the correct ftpd or editted /etc/inetd.conf to make sure that;s calls proftpd.

is the user's shell in /etc/shells?

have to read the documentation on proftpd?

have you asked on the email list?
