Default pure-ftp CLIENTNAME on ISPConfig 3?

Hi,

Installed Fedora 15 - ISPConfig 3 following instructions.

I've never used pure-ftp prior to this installation so I don't where it keeps it's configuration files.

I've discovered where my CLIENTNAME is listed (under the ftp user list).

I can connect to the server with pure-ftp with a Linux user id, but not with an ISPConfig defined ftp user. I'm using FileZilla on port 22 as the ftp client. I used my domain name (with the tld of course) but not the protocol as the host.

I'm at a loss to know what to do.

Please could someone give me advice. Thanks.

Default /etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf

The configuration file is setup as it should be.

I can only get connected on port 22 as SSH.

On port 21 as TLSES I get an error.

I got past accepting my certificate, that's OK.

FileZilla log screen shows last successful entry" "227 entering passive mode (192...)"

Then immediately I get a Status:"Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead"

Then it dies - error messages in red.

/var/log/messages shows login successful then logout, but no errors.

Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

Thats most likely a firewall issue. Try to disable the firewall and if that works, define a passive port range in the firewall and the pureftpd configuration.

Default yes both active and passive with firewall down

Yes, I've tried both active and passive (port 990) with the firewall disabled.

One irregularity was that I caught that I had not set TLS 1 until after I installed ISPConfig 3. But after restarting pure-ftpd and rebooting still it didn't work.

After having problems I discovered the FTP HOWTO "Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management) On Fedora 14". I'm not sure whether that is just for ISPConfig 2, but I haven't done that stuff.

Thank you for your help.

This tutorial is incompatible with all ispconfig versions, so dont use that on a ispconfig server. The only tutorial that is required to setup the server is the perfect setup guide for ispconfig 3. Dont use the guide for ispconfig 2 or any oher tutorial. Mske sure that you folowed every command exactly. Port 990 is not the ftp port. Please use the normal ftp port 21 to connect to ftp. Are connections withot tls are working fine?

Thats a firewall issue, the connection gets interrupted when ftp switches to another port. Please turn of the firewall and try again. Be aware that it takes at least one minute until the ispconfig firewall is turned off. It may also be a firewall at yor isp or datacenter which blocks the connection.

Smile GnuTLS error -53: Error in the push function

With firewalls disabled and off I still got the problem.

I Googled the error:"GnuTLS error -53: Error in the push function" and found a discussion thread on a FileZilla forum about a confirmed bug in gnuTLS. (I've have a different Linux kernel level 2.6.4 than the instructions on howtoforge.com). My gnuTLS is gnutls-2.10.5-1.fc15.x86_64 while my FileZilla agent uses 2.10.4.

So I downloaded a different FTP client and now everything works as it should.

Thanks again,
JESUSSAVES
