Default ProFTPD - Strange behaviour - double config?


i've installed an Debian Etch on a Strato vServer. Most of installation was done almost similar to the Perfect Debian Etch How-to here on howtoforge.

Playing around with ProFTPD-Settings to get TLS working i pointed out a strange behaviour of the ftpserver.

To take a long story short, local connection to the ftpserver seems to be a different configuration then remote access.
I had changed the ServerIdent at /etc/proftpd.conf (ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."). Login in local brings this message. Remote login brings up '220 ProFTPD 1.3.0 Server (Debian) [xx.xxx.xxx.IP]'

netstat -tap gives:

ps aux brings only one proftpd. Nothing, what seems to me for another hit than maybe inetd.
But i checked /etc/inetd.conf - but everything's commented out but of ident.

I can bring further info if it's needed, but actually haven't got a glue, where else to look at ...

Anybody an idea how to check this?
Thanks in advance.
