..Hi falko,

..yes.. I think so. I will guard the proftp.conf and downgrade to the original version of the Mandriva 2006 CD ..

Smile A cue for you - the log cheated

I've just experienced similar thing as you.

I failed to run "urpmi" with message after updated proftpd.conf:
...retrieving failed: curl: (9) FTP: access denied
But I overlooked the "access denied" and went to check log message, which showed the same strange triplet as you:

FTP session opened.
invalid CommandBufferSize size (0) given, resetting to default buffer size (512)
FTP session closed
I started snort to check the packets and found it's indeed some "Permission denied" condition.

So I suggest that you check again the error message in your ftp client. It's quite probable an access permission problem.

Thumbs up FTP - the solucion ?

Well, as I wrote before I deleted the FTP and installed it again (of course with the config-fies backed up).

AND YES .. I could access the sites with the built-in FTP-access in the administration-panel. BUT .. ftp-access via Kbear didnt run (OS Linux).

I gave it a try and installed GFTP .. and YESSS .. it runs ok.

I did not test it with windows-FTP-clients .. but if there is a connecting-problem I think its worth to try another FTP-client.
