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

    wow! great guide!

    i managed to use your guide as a base for setting up my own multi user server (see here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=466582)

    but, i wanted to try encrypted FTP, and i managed to follow your instructions and now my server operates only on SSL (as i would like...) but when i try to connect this is the output i get

    Code:
     WinSock 2.0 -- OpenSSL 0.9.8b 04 May 2006
    [R] Connecting to 192.168.2.88 -> IP=192.168.2.88 PORT=1396
    [R] Connected to 192.168.2.88
    [R] 220 you're at home
    [R] AUTH TLS
    [R] 234 AUTH TLS successful
    [R] Connected. Negotiating TLSv1 session..
    [R] error:14094410:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake failure
    [R] Failed TLSv1 negotiation, disconnected
    [R] Connection failed (Connection closed by client)
    [R] Delaying for 120 seconds before reconnect attempt #1
    [R] Retry attempt Aborted
    this output comes from flashfxp 3.4.0 running on windows x64

    any ideas?

    I never could get encryption to work either but from what I see, you're trying to use 2 different protocols, TLSv1 and SSLv3, those can't communicate properly I don't think. Is there an preference within FlashFXP for the encypt protocol that is used? sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    Darth_tater, Are you sure to have selected the right protocol ? The instruction in my guide are for TLS encryption (also called FTPS) not SSL (which is called SFTP).

    Could you try with another FTP client just to be sure that it's not a FTP client issue, ? If you have firefox you can try the fireFTP extension it has TLS support.

    I haven't tried this in a very long time but I just found this and it may or may not help you. BUt according to this link: http://www.verio.com/support/documen...fm?doc_id=2261
    you need to ensure that your server will accept various ciphers of the TLS/SSL encryption so they suggest adding this to your TLS section within your proftpd.conf file.

    TlsCipherList ALL:!EXP

    As I said, don't know if it will help, just found it and thought what the hell, might as well let him know. Good luck

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

    I have followed the guide step by step but I can't get it to work. I try to log on to my servers ftp from IE, I type the correct port and the login box pops up. I enter the correct information and the box dissapears and it start to load, then nothing happens, it never gets passed the loading part. Anyone who has a solution for this?

    Heinrisch, we need more details to help you like your config, you proftpd.conf, the log of your FTP client and in general all informations that can help to make an analysis. Without that it will be hard to help you.

          	AllowAll
        	</Limit>
    </Directory>
    Its basically the same as the example, I thinkn I only changed the username and the port. Im running the latest version of the ubuntu server.

    This is what my ftp log says:
    Code:
    ...
    ::ffff:192.168.1.1 UNKNOWN nobody [14/Jun/2007:22:22:16 -0400] "USER samba" 331 -
    ::ffff:192.168.1.1 UNKNOWN userftp [14/Jun/2007:21:22:16 -0500] "PASS (hidden)" 230 -
    ::ffff:192.168.1.1 UNKNOWN userftp [14/Jun/2007:21:22:16 -0500] "CWD /" 250 -
    ::ffff:192.168.1.1 UNKNOWN userftp [14/Jun/2007:21:22:16 -0500] "TYPE A" 200 -
    ::ffff:192.168.1.1 UNKNOWN userftp [14/Jun/2007:21:22:16 -0500] "PASV" 227 -
    ...
    When I try to log this happens:
    I connect, get respons from server asking me for password, sending back password and then it timeouts..
