    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Ok, i found the problem.
    Now my ftp works with virtual users.

    Why it wasn't working? It's because i was trying to use SSL.
    So if i set this option in vsftpd.conf : ssl_enable=YES, my ftp server won't start, and i get this error : init: vsftpd main process (2692) terminated with status 1
    init: vsftpd respawning too fast, stopped

    So now i have a new problem, can't work with ssl.

    Any idea?

    thanks,

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I've set up virtual users. The home dir for them should be /media/truecrypt1. I've mounted an encrypted partition that I want the FTP users to gain access to. I've added my own system user to the workers group and I'm now trying to change the group permissions on /media/truecrypt1.

    Anything I throw at it doesn't work. E.g:

    wh1sk3yj4ck@valkyrie:/media$ ls -l
    total 44
    drwx------ 1 wh1sk3yj4ck wh1sk3yj4ck 40960 2010-10-21 20:38 truecrypt1
    drwxr-xr-x 6 wh1sk3yj4ck workers 4096 2010-10-21 20:32 truecrypt2
    wh1sk3yj4ck@valkyrie:/media$ sudo chgrp -R workers truecrypt1
    wh1sk3yj4ck@valkyrie:/media$ ls -l
    total 44
    drwx------ 1 wh1sk3yj4ck wh1sk3yj4ck 40960 2010-10-21 20:38 truecrypt1
    drwxr-xr-x 6 wh1sk3yj4ck workers 4096 2010-10-21 20:32 truecrypt2
    wh1sk3yj4ck@valkyrie:/media$
    Wth? The other volume worked just fine.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I am new to vsftp. Thanks for the guidance this howto provides.

    But as life is never that easy i have some questions

    The FTPS setup in the first post mentions those options for the vsftpd.conf
    Code:
    ssl_tlsv1=YES
    ssl_sslv2=YES
    ssl_sslv3=YES
    I was looking at the man page in parallel to verify what i am doing and couldn't find those listed. (Perhaps those changed over time?)

    There is an option ssl_ciphers which seems like an adequate replacement to choose allowed encryption algorithms.

    But I am not a 100% confident which are considered to be safe these days. I found a post on another forum here suggesting this setup

    Code:
    ssl_ciphers=ADH-AES256-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:DHE-DSS-AES256-SHA:AES256-SHA
    Could anybody with a profound security background tell me if it is wise/safe to choose those options?

    Thanks guys for the effort you put into this forum!

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Hi,

    Is it possible to have in VSFTPD same username for login to more that one domain?

    Example: I want to create the user "test" for domain mydomain.com
    And then I what to create the user "test" for domain yourdomain.com

    And both mydomain.com and yourdomain.com point to the same VSFTPD server that has only one public IP address.

    Is it possible to make VSFTPD know which user tries to log in from the two and place it in his correct home directory?

    For example if I try to user for login the username: test@mydomain.com
    And for a different login to use test@yourdomain.com

    How can I do this in VSFTPD?

    Can you please tell me.

    Thank you.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Hi there.
    So, I've got vsftpd working. ... Mostly. When I try to connect through FileZilla using ServerType and FTPES, I get "PASS" for my connection with the password and whatnot... but then it spits this out:

    GnuTLS error -8: A record packet with illegal version was received.

    Has anyone ever had a similar issue, or know what it's about? I'm rather lost...

    Thanks!

    Got that error sometime back too. Cant recall how i fixed it.

    Maybe u can start with those customized setting that u had on ur vsftpd.conf so as to troubleshoot easier.

    Start by commenting out those customized settings... Thats how I solve the issue.
