Does Fireftp supports FTP with full TLS encryption ? I know filezilla does but i'm not sure about Fireftp.
Yes, it's easy to use and really powerful
Yes, but i won't use it
No, the GUI has to be improved
I follwed the instruction precisely, but no luck with TLS/SSL connection. When i sniff the packets, i can see the username and passwd in plain text.

I'm getting that 530 error with proftpd, and am at my wit's end trying to debug it.
This is a really excellent thread, however, so I hope someone could please help me to see the error of my ways. :/
I've attached my proftpd.conf file, which I attempted to resemble the example shown at the beginning of this thread.
To start with, there's my error message:
ftp -P 1024 firstname.lastname@example.org
Connected to 18.104.22.168.
220 ProFTPD 1.3.1 Server ready.
331 Password required for avatar
530 Login incorrect.
ftp: Login failed
Here's what my ftp directories look like:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root nogroup 4096 2010-03-23 18:14 ftp
drwxr-xr-x 4 root nogroup 4096 2010-04-02 15:02 FTP-shared
and in FTP-shared:
drwxr-xr-x 4 root nogroup 4096 2010-04-02 15:02 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 2010-04-02 14:56 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2010-04-02 15:02 download
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 2010-04-02 15:02 upload
I can start/stop proftpd fine, and I can see it is listening on port 1024 (this is at Amazon Web Services):
> netstat -nap

Any help will be much appreciated! (Trying to get this finished for a client!)
Thanks in advance,
Try to set it on port 21 for debug purpose, try to reset the password using command line, check directory rights, disable IPV6 if you don't need it.
These are the things i would try if i was in your case.
Can someone help me to tighten my security up. I dont wanna users to be able to browse through root dir. I don't know what shell to use. I have a Download and Upload map. I just want users to be able to browse through these dir's and nothing else.
the easiest i've seen
First of all, thank you for this great HOWTO!!
I had it working for a year, then i change the location of the folders to /var/www after that everything screwed up. I got the 530 Login incorrect, everytime i try to login. I tried to change the user accounts but that didnt work so i changed it back to the exact same thing as in your howto.
i have now recover it back to /home/userftp and the logins. But i still get the 530 Login incorrect.
My system is Debian etch with no X and ProFTPD Version 1.3.0.
I really need help this.
