The Perfect Server - ISPConfig3 - Debian - PureFTPd

I've installed ISPConfig 3.0.3 on a (OpenVZ) Debian 5.0.3 (with plenty resources) multiple times now without errors, but every time I run into the same problem where I can't authenticate with the Pure-FTP server giving me following error (Komodo).


Error: 'No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it'
Tried to find answers on different sites but couldn't find anything.

I'm not sure what I did wrong, just followed the how to on:

I also made a firewall record to allow the following ports.
TCP: 20,21,22,25,53,80,110,143,443,3306,8080,8081,10000
UDP: 53,3306

Not sure which command output to give along with this post, so any help is much appreciated and I'll try to respond quickly with requested command outputs.

Kind regards,

Richard Reijmers

It was indeed the last chapter to which I didn't pay enough attention:eek:

Now all is well and I can open FTP connections to my server, many thanks!
