    I can connect with the the web ftp but when i try to connect with smart ftp it says connection created then the server resets the connection. The web user has admin rights and ftp is set up for the site.

    To check if proftp is running please check the output of:
    netstat -tap

    If Proftp is running indeed, please do not use your FTP-client in "Passive mode".
    When your FTP-connection is rather slow, you can considder to add:

    UseReverseDNS off
    IdentLookups off


    to your /etc/proftpd.conf file.

    This is the output of nestat -tap

    tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN 29852/proftpd: (acc

    This all i have in my proftp.conf file. I put what you suggested but i still isn't working shouldn't there be more in my proftp.conf file. :confused:

    DefaultRoot ~
    IdentLookups off
    ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready"
    UseReverseDNS off
    IdentLookups off


    Include /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf

    This is strange indeed and not enough.

    There is an original config file for proftpd available.
    I suggest to use it now, so do the following:

    cp /etc/proftpd.conf file /etc/proftpd-old.conf
    cp /proftpd.conf.orig /etc/proftpd.conf

    Restart proftp with:

    /etc/init.d/proftpd start

    or

    /etc/init.d/proftpd restart
