    Hello everyone,

    I am having a problem on a server where I have removed vsftpd and installed proftpd. When logging in with filezilla or smartftp I get a directory listing error. I can however get a directory listing from a windows command prompt. I can not however write to the directory.

    Does anyone have an idea on this issue?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just realized I posted this in the wrong thread, my apologies. Please move it if needed.

    Please change the FTP mode in filezilla from passive to active or configure your firewall / router to allow passive FTP.

    yes, that would do it, thanks till. Just when I thought I was getting somewhere learning linux something so easy is overlooked. I set my ftp client to active, it listed the directory.

    Thanks till. I beat myself over the head for a week on this one :rolleyes:
