ftp password rejected
 
I've installed ispconfig 3 as a Xen server through a hypervm ostemplate using debian lenny. Everything seens to function correctly (client creation, web site creation, webmail and stats) but when i create an ftp account the password gets rejected with error 530 when attempting to conect using FireFTP.
Ftp for the web site is enabled and Pureftpd is running as:-

netstat -ap | grep "*:ftp"

displays

tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN

There is nothing in the logs for Pureftp, and I have tried ftp in active and passive modes. Also I am using the correct login (client id + additional user name text) and I only used normal text characters for login and password.
Thanks for any help you can give with this.

Which Linuxdistribution?

Sorry for not making it clear in my first post, hypervm with xen is installed on Centos 5 and the ispconfig domu is debian 5.

Can you login with FTP on localhost?

Do I need to install an ftp client on the ispconfig server to do this?

tebokkel 21st April 2009 22:21

Normally not, normally you have the command "ftp" readily available:

Code:

tebokkel@www1:~$ ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.
220 FTP Server ready.
Name (localhost:tebokkel): tebokkel
331 Password required for tebokkel.
Password:
230 User tebokkel logged in.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

I've tried that and I am getting:-

-bash: ftp: command not found.

I started with a basic install of debian 5 as the ispconfig server, will it "hurt" the setup if I install a ftp client?

Thanks

No, it won't.

Just do:
apt-get install ftp

as root and you're done.

OK I've installed ftp and this is what I get:-

Code:

test:~# ftp localhost
Connected to localhost.localdomain.
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 22:16. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.

331 User steve-ftp OK. Password required
Password:
530 Login authentication failed

I've definitely got an issue somewhere

Now your FTP-log should show something, doesn't it?
Or else in /var/log/messages or /var/log/security?
