FTP Does Not Work



I cannot make FTP connections to FTP accounts set up by a user.


I am using pure-ftpd. Is this supposed to run stand alone or through xinetd? xinetd is listening on port 21 but I cannot find in the /etc/xinetd.d directory's configuration files what service this is for. There does not seem to be any "service ftp" configuration in any of the files there, including the froxlor file.


The pure-ftpd daemon is running.

I am able to make an FTP connection now. I made sure the firewall was not blocking:

/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT

I am not sure if this made the difference.


What finally did it was the shutdown of xinetd, use of the domain name without the ftp subdomain that I have been accustomed to at other hosting services. E. g.:


instead of:


and setting the FTP client for passive FTP.
