Cannot login to ProFTPd

Hello All,

I am trying to setup ProFTPd in Fedora 16. I am using to default config file.

When trying to logon with my user account, I get a password incorrect error! Any ideas to why this is happening? My understanding is that FTP validates system accounts. Or should I be adding users for FTP specifically?

I have also opened ports 20 and 21 in the Firewall.

Error:

Re: Cannot login to ProFTPd

I am afraid that your problem with ProFTPD is cause by Fedora 16. That was my experience and I have goen back to Fedora 15 and everything is working OK now.

I've set up the following in Fedora 15:
ProFTPD alone
ProFTPD with TLS enabled
sFTP with sshd

All seem to work flawlessly.

With Fedora 16, I was able to log onto ProFPD one day and then was not next. It was so frustrating.

Re: Cannot login to ProFTPd

Thanks for the reply Pinenut. I can confirm that. I tried vsftpd, Proftpd and pure-ftpd and all failed in Fedora16. Downgraded to Fedora 15 and vsftpd worked like a charm. Going to try ProFTPd again as soon as I get some time.

Cheers for the tip. Really helped.

Re: Cannot login to ProFTPd

Same FTP error in Fedora 16 but this worked for me without needing to downgrade to Fedora 15:
SOLUTION==>
[root@www yum.repos.d]# yum downgrade bash.x86_64 0:4.2.20-1.fc16
[root@www yum.repos.d]# yum downgrade pam.x86_64

Note: I had no ftp problems after update below:
[root@www yum.repos.d]# yum update proftpd.x86_64

Hope this helps!

Thank you abpstephen.
Your solution works.
I lost more than a day to try to make proftpd running on Fedora 16.
