into /etc/vsftpd.conf and restart vsftpd:
I always get this when I restart vsftpd and did some searching but really didn't see where it was a problem but I dont have enough experience yet to say it is not the problem
Better yet... is "&" Start or Restart, and what is Stop!?
server1:~ # /usr/sbin/vsftpd &
500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv4 socket
 Exit 1 /usr/sbin/vsftpd
(Up to now I have used Gnome but majority seems to think KDE is better so I went with it when I reloaded SuSe)
Please use the vsftpd init script in /etc/init.d to start/stop/restart vsftpd.
