Tried that same problem still. In my routers firewall (linksys) i have my ftp port forward back to my windows ftp server and all is well but when pointed to the linux box or bypassing firewall still have issue?
while thinking about this if you look at one of my other ftp client logs it shows the IP or the physical ftp server (192.168.1.205) could that be why it is stopping? that ip shows up right at the list command? shouldn't that IP be my external resolved static IP (126.96.36.199) i get from my cable company?

Also i noticed this WARNING message when restarting proftpd is there any concern here?
Shutting down ProFTPD Server: done
Starting ProFTPD Server: - warning: "ProFTPD" address/port (192.168.1.205:21) already in use by "ProFTPD Default Installation"
I came across this thread on the proftpd site, it is the same problem im having but for a totally differant linux build. they talk about tunring off NSCD helping it, i did try to stop the NSCD service but it wont shut off, when i etll the system to it says its off but if i "chkconfig --list" the list show it still running. Anyways they also talk about a differant linux build so don't want to get in too deep until i see what you think. the thread about this is:
--thanks for helping, i'm desperate to resolve this so i can get my clients up thanks for any help!
