    Try this ...

    sudo apt-get install db4.3-util

    then ...

    sudo db4.3_load etc instead of db3_load

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    devill, I have the same problem with the chmod 600 and not being able to download. I have come up with a workaround for it. Use the anon_world_readable_only=NO instruction to allow all files to be readable.

    I prefer changing the 600 permissions to 660 but this worked for the moment.

    This download is for Intel x86 processor Ubuntu computers.

    if you wish to use the db3_load you have to download and run the sudo dpkg -i package-name.deb command.

    First - go to and download, http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/i386/libdb3/download

    go to the directory where the new file is residing and run sudo dpkg -i libdb3_3.2.9-23_i386.deb.

    Follow the on screen instructions. This should install the necessary library files for the next step.

    Send - go to and download, http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/i3...-util/download

    go to the directory where the new file is residing and run sudo dpkg -i libdb3-util_3.2.9-23_i386.deb

    Follow the on screen instructions. If everything went okay, you now have db3_load.

    Note: Other machine types/versions exist that may suit your needs at http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=libdb3

    The above link will provide you a more detailed list and selection of which package types to install.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Working with Ubuntu and vsftpd for the first time. Found it easy to configure with system users but that doesn't sound like a secure method. Our users and clients will share the same username and password to access a common directory. Tried setting up a single virtual user but get access denied errors when connecting. Didn't setup TLS/SSL/FTPS because I had problems getting it to work with IE and Windows Explorer. Looking for a secure and easy way to setup users. Please let me know what other information would be useful. Have a deadline of May 1st.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I've been trying to get vsftpd to work and this is what I've run into... I can access the folder I've setup using FileZilla but when I try to download a file, this is the error I get:
    Status: Starting download of /myfile
    Command: TYPE I
    Response: 200 Switching to Binary mode.
    Command: PASV
    Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (XX,XXX,XXX,XX,XXX,XX - this is my server IP address)
    Command: RETR myfile
    Response: 550 Failed to open file.
    Error: Critical error
    I used chown to assure the download folder is owned by the user but still no luck. Any suggestions?

    I was able to get vsftp working. The following document helped in addition to this thread.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I am still very new. I am trying to set up Ubuntu 9.04 server. I'm stuck at step 1. I do sudo apt-get install vsftpd and it gives error message "Couldn't find package vsftpd". Perhaps there is already another ftp package? Perhaps already installed? All I am trying to do is make it possible for me to get a file from my MacBook onto my server using ftp. I am clueless how to get files to and from my server as of yet. I am committed to learning terminal-only administration! I am also up for hekp setting up samba. I have bought a few ubuntu books but it is slow to digest.

    ***
    Appended:

    Was able to use scp command to do local transfers to/from my MacBook. Still want to setup ftp though.

    Local transfer syntax:
    ktritty@macbook$ scp /path/filename serveruser@ip.address.of.server:/outputpath/filename

    This works great; must have ssh services active and proper ssh port open

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I'm having the same problem. I checked resolv.conf and I can ping by name, so DNS resolution isn't the issue. Any suggestions? I'm relatively new to this, trying to set up server for the first time.

    Thanks,
    John

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Most of the serious issues will be because there is something wrong with the vsftpd.conf file and firewall tunneling. Tunneling simply means, telling the router to let certain ports cross thru or bypass the firewall. Heck, most routers are even firewalls, they simple hide private addresses from public, but, that's a different story.

    ktritty, how did you install Ubuntu Server? Is it actually on a physical hard drive with dedicated components like motherboard and network card, or is it running with VMWare software?

    jmeggers, please post your config file and tell me what type of network setup you have. DNS shouldn't be the problem. If you have an IP address to your system you should be able to use that.

    I personally ran into several differences in each how to or tutorial I read. In fact, I haven't found one that actual worked the way they said it should. This one included. I figured mine out by using the trial by error method. Sucks
