okay... I created the pam.d/ftp file. Whether that helped or not don't know for sure but I was able to log in as anonymous and as user.
I guess I need to know what commands can be used and what they are used for. I'll check ProFTPDs home page for that.
Meantime... I switched over to my MS box and tryed to log in using WS_FTP as the same user I logged in via console and still couldn't get it to connect. Actually the window at the bottom of WS_FTP that shows status and progress indicates "Connecting to MYIP:21", then "connected to MYIP Port 21. But then it gives "! Receive error: connection reset" followed by "Connection failed ftp.mydomain.net"
Anybody have any idea what I might be doing wrong? I checked my router and Port 21 is open.
