    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    It use db4.6-util
    I kept getting "unknown user" until I changed my vsftpd.conf file:

    pam_service_name=vsftpd
    Which has to match the name used in /etc/pam.d. I was migrating my config to a new server and didn't catch that.

    Sheesh.

    In Hardy libdb3 is replaced by version 4... search for it in aptitude.

    The libdb doesn't work for me either and I did a search with no results for libdb(anything)-util


    Thoughts?

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I see alot of you are having the same problem I have been having. I could connect internally, but I could not connect externally. So, add this nice little piece to your /etc/vsftpd.conf file:

    pasv_enable=YES
    pasv_promiscuous=YES
    pasv_min_port=50000
    pasv_max_port=50100
    pasv_address=[your external ip here]

    Make sure you foward those pasv_min and max ports from your router.
    Make sure you foward ports 20 and 21 from your router.
    Make sure "connect_from_port_20=YES" is uncommented (no #).
    You don't need "#listen_port=990" so leave it commented.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Hello, thanks for your efforts writing this tutorial. I stuck at certain moment: sudo apt-get install libdb3-util
    This package isn't available in Hardy LTS. Libdb4 has been installed, but there is no /usr/bin/db* executable. How can I solve this?
    Thanks and regards,
    Ralph

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    HI. I read the first howto in this thread.
    I connect to the internet via a router. Anything special I have to do because of this? I'm a newbie to this kind of stuff so I'm pretty clueless at this point

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I am trying to setup vsftpd as an ftp server to eventually move off-site to make backups to, for additional redundancy.

    I am having the some problems connecting using TLSv1. Filezilla connects fine with standard FTP and gives directory listing correctly. Using FTPES it connects and is authenticated but cannot display directory listing. My setup is as follows:

    Virgin Media ISP
    Motorola surfboard cable modem
    Draytek Vigor 2820
    Ubuntu Server 8.1 Intrepid Ibex with vsftpd installed and hopefully configured correctly (standard ftp working fine), currently listening on port 21, but I have also tried changing that to 990, with identical results.
    XP Pro PC using Filezilla ftp client

    I am connecting to the ftp server using a dyndns address and am forwarding ports 21 and 990 to the local IP of the server.

    If someone could point me to what I might be doing wrong, opening additional ports on the router maybe? I would be grateful.

    Many Thanks in advance for any assistance!
