    Newer versions of said package. No guarantee it will fix everything you're trying to do though .

    It's ricidulous I agree.
    Networking is the last bastion of the autistic savant geeks who love to make everything as difficult and time consuming as possible.
    Not everyone is a sysadmin being paid to do nothing but sit & type long cryptic case sensitive command strings all day long..

    Install & make it insecure (easy to access in a trusted LAN:

    Install & make it very secure in an enterprise environment:

    It seems the location of 'pam_userdb.so' has changed (I'm using Ubuntu 13.10).
    Code:
    $ locate pam_userdb.so
    /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/security/pam_userdb.so
    So after the following command:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/pam.d/ftp
    the content might need to change to:
    Code:
    auth required /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/security/pam_userdb.so db=/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd_login
    account required /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/security/pam_userdb.so db=/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd_login
    And again, check the location of 'pam_userdb.so', the location might be different in 32-bit or other Ubuntu versions.

    Hope this helps
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install db-util
    Sometimes when you type the command, Ubuntu might suggest the package needed.
    For example in this scenario
    Code:
    $ db_load
    The program 'db_load' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    sudo apt-get install db-util

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    So I have Ubuntu 14.04 on an HP Microserver N54L
    I'm tech-savvie to a degree, working on Windows mainly, but got an iMac a couple of years back, and never really got into OSX.

    After probably a week i managed to get the mac to user the server for Time Machine backups but, although I can "see" my server in Finder on the Mac I cannot browse or see any folders let alone copy "stuff" to it. (and I mean a week solid pulling my hair out !!)

    So I now desperately want to set up ftp so an iPhone user can use a free ftp client to upload a (rather long) video of a recently deceased relative.
    I have no more hair to pull out but I despair t the title of these thread "Easy ftp with VSFTPD" the 13 pages of problems bear out my despair.

    Can someone please tell me if it will work with my setup ? and possibly point me to a tutorial that works ?

    I'd probably need some good pointers on how to remove all the "bad programming" that I've ended up with, taking tips and hints from various threads/tutorials is not a good idea in my opinion.

    Thanks in advance for any help - I realise this thread has been dormant for some three weeks.

    Please be kind !!

    Please don't use FTP for that. It's 2014, not 1994 For a simple file transfer with an iMac, if you are using OS X or Ubuntu, SFTP is the way to go. It's part of the system in OS X and it can be turned on by going to System Preferences -> Internet & Networking -> Sharing -> Remote Login. Or something like that, it's been a while. If you are running Ubuntu on your iMac, then just install the package openssh-server.

    Either way, SFTP clients will then be able to connect to the machine securely and easily. Is your SFTP client on the iPhone Cyberduck?

    Re: sftp

    Hi Lars, thank you for the speedy reply !

    The iMax is OSX Mountain Lion, the HP server has Ubuntu 14.04 installed. Going forward, I would like to be able to connect remotely to the Ubuntu server (securely !!)

    I thought the "VS" of vsftpd would be adequate, but I'll have to look at SFTP now.
    In the short term, if I can get the video from the iPhone to the mac (we live 90 miles apart !) via SFTP that will suffice for now but as mentioned I would like colleagues at work and family to connect/upload and download to the HP server at some point in the near future !
    Her iPhone currently has no ftp client and I wanted to use a free app as they are not related to me etc and are doing me a favour by allowing me to see the video. so I chose FTP Sprite (it's free) and I've used that on my iPhone to ftp to a colleague's ftp server .

    I'm off to Google SFTP and OS X

    Thanks again for your input

    Regards

    Netrix

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Trying to set up vsftpd on Ubuntu server 14.04 . Everything works aslong as SSL is not enabled.

    Filezilla:
    Code:
    Status:    Connecting to 192.168.1.67:990...
    Status:    Connection established, initializing TLS...
    Error:    GnuTLS error -15: An unexpected TLS packet was received.
    Error:    Could not connect to server
    vsftpd.conf
    Code:
    listen=YES
    anonymous_enable=YES
    local_enable=YES
    write_enable=YES
    dirmessage_enable=YES
    use_localtime=YES
    xferlog_enable=YES
    connect_from_port_20=YES
    secure_chroot_dir=/var/run/vsftpd/empty
    pam_service_name=vsftpd
    rsa_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
    rsa_private_key_file=/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
    ssl_enable=YES
    allow_anon_ssl=NO
    force_local_data_ssl=YES
    force_local_logins_ssl=YES
    ssl_tlsv1=YES
    ssl_sslv2=YES
    ssl_sslv3=YES
    listen_port=990
    ssl_ciphers=HIGH
    debug_ssl=YES
    There's nothing about SSL in /var/log/vsftpd.log even though debug_ssl is enabled.

    Code:
    Mon Jun 23 14:32:51 2014 [pid 1905] CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.66"
    Mon Jun 23 14:32:56 2014 [pid 1909] CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.66"
    Mon Jun 23 14:37:22 2014 [pid 1913] CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.66"
    Mon Jun 23 14:37:36 2014 [pid 1917] CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.66"
    Mon Jun 23 14:37:41 2014 [pid 1921] CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.66"


    Any ideas?



    E: Figured it out - I was trying to implicit FTP over TLS, when implicit_ssl was disabled.
