    General proftpd config debug belongs elsewhere.

    Maybe drop your question in the proftpd forum if you don't get answers on ubuntuforums.

    i got it sorted out

    it was the router causing the issue. i had by suspicions it was

    i had to adjust the firewall in the router to enable port 20 & 21 to be allowed

    now the ftp server talks to the net and does what i wanted it to do

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    THX for this tutorial. I've been using samba on 8.04 but it doesn't work on jaunty any more. At least, not. So I decided to start using FTP again as I did on win long time ago. Samba was good because of streaming.

    I think I set up my servers correctly. I can log on on both of them (jaunty x2) but the problem is that I can't see the folders that are supposed to be shared. I used Gadmin-proftpd to do that. First I got some error when I tried to add shared folder (something about "var/ftp missing") but I added folder anyway. But I can't see them.

    The folders I want to share are on non system disks, but those disks are mounted under media folder automatically during boot. What am I missing?

    Which error do you get exactly?
    I have never used Gadmin-proftpd so I can't help you on that program. Could you post your /etc/proftd/proftd.conf?

    I think there is no error, apart from that "missing var/ftp folder" wich occurs on selecting folder that I want to share through Gadmin-proftpd. But I believe my connection is OK. I can connect, but I don't see anything on the other side.

    Here is the config file.........

    Could you try to not use spaces in folder's name?

    If the problem was that, you can put the directory name between " if you want to use spaces in directory names.

    Example:
    <Anonymous "/media/sda2/FTP tx1000">

    Good to know. I'll try some other time when I'll be setting up some ftp. Now I already renamed my folders and everything seems to be fine. Thanks again.

    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    I'm not sure if this has already been asked and replied too. I don't want to read through 100+ pages

    My question is, how do I specify a default directory for each user using the gui? If I create and add the directory when I'm creating a new user but how to I make a directory default for a user? There's no where that really says make default directory for user. I've tried a few different ways but nothing has worked

    I want each user/computer in the house to have their own area where they don't see anyone else's files and for example the person is connecting whilst using Ubuntu (Places>Connect to server>FTP(With log in)) I want them to type in their own directory to connect to. And because its specified what directory they connect to on the server, it will reject anyother file path.

    Hopefully I've explained it right

    Cheers.

    Yep, don't forget the "search this thread feature" it allows you to find what you look for if it exists without reading the whole thread
    About your issue unfortunately we don't really officialy provide support for using the GUI but some users using it may pop in with a solution.

    If you are not text file allergic using the manual configuration is a better option as it allows painless debug and accurate configuration.

    Good luck
