proftpd Problems

I recently felt like trying out an ftp server on my vps. I tried proftpd like DeathProxy said ( but in FileZilla, I get

Why does it fail?

Log in to maverak with ssh.
Then, do:
cd /

It might be because your user doesn't have the permissions for /


[maverak@GamerZ ~]$ cd /
[maverak@GamerZ /]$ ls boot etc lost+found opt sbin sys var
aquota.user cgroup home media proc selinux tmp
bin dev lib mnt root srv usr
[maverak@GamerZ /]$

I can list it successfully...

This is weird. It has never happened to me before.
Are you using FileZilla?
If so, take a look at this:

More importantly, this part:
Quote:Most likely some router and/or firewall sabotaging the connection.

You can check your server on to find out whether the problem exists on your end of the connection or on the server side.

Go to put in your info and click "Test my server"


Error: Could not establish data connection: No route to host

Does that mean my firewall is blocking it?

Is that what it says in the test log or the results?
Post what you get in the test log.
nah, in that Online FTP Tester

I hate to sound like a complete idiot, but where are the test logs located? my "/var/log/proftpd" directory is empty

Go to put in your info and click "Test my server"

When it "finishes" the test, there should be a section on the page called "test log" with a lot of text in it. Just copy that and paste it in here ( ) and click Submit instead of spamming it in here.
Okay, thats done. It is in .

Try runnning:
service iptables stop

Then, try the again and post the test log in the same place.
