I just posted a note a few days ago about experience w/ vsftpp...I gave
up and got proftpd to work...here's an except from my note if you go
the proftpd route
After giving up on vsftpd, I installed proftpd and it wouldn't work
either. I tried to run proftpd as a standalone and that didn't work
I finally traced this to an /opt/etc/inetd.conf file that still had the
vsftpd config information in it (after I used ipkg remove vsftpd).
"ftp stream tcp nowait root /opt/sbin/vsftpd
which is created by the diversion script I added as in the vsfptd howto.
when I created a new blank inetd.conf, proftpd worked fine
As I noted I'm a linux newbie, but my guess is that the old line in the
inetd.conf was consuming port 21 with the ftp command. After I cleared
the inetd.conf file, proftpd works fine.
I just wonder if the advice in the howto to make the diversion script
has some error in it. Suggest you try deleting the diversion script
and the inet.d file mentoned above and see if vsftpd works. I'd be
interested because proftpd seems somewhat slugish in response.
Best of luck
Bob (fellow linux newbie).
