    Where do I find pure-ftp error log?

    /var/log/pure-ftp has only transfer logs.

    pure-ftpd should put errors into /var/log/syslog

    Have you tried using a different ftp client?

    OK. I got it working (almost).
    As you suggested I had tried a different ftp client (total cmd) and it connecter right away.
    hmmm... why can't filezilla do that anymore. So I tracked down the cause - passive and active mode. My whole life always connected using passive mode.
    So how do I enable back the passive mode in pure-ftpd?
