Default ftp access not working

gday,

i am trying to access the ftp server at ftp://192.168.0.100, i get prompted with the username / password,

when i enter the credentials it says bad username password, but if i login as a client into ispconfig and use webftp and enter the same credentials it allows the login, is there something i am doing wrong...

Please open the proftpd.conf file (in /etc/) and comment out the include for the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file. then restart proftpd.

I'am not sure what causes the problem. Fedora is the only linux distribution that does not allow different virtual proftpd server settings per IP as ispconfig sets them up. By removing the ispconfig include, you have just one main proftpd server setting. The only drawback is that you now have just one Anonymous FTP account for the server and not one anon FTP per IP.
