    Hello and good evening.

    I have recently installed ISPConfig 2.2.29 with ProFTPD on OpenSUSE 11.1 as instructed per the installation documentation. For some reason ISPConfig is reporting the FTP service being offline while in fact it is not. I am able to ftp into the machine from outside of my network. I have restarted the server from within the control panel and also from the command line with no success. Can someone instruct me in the right direction to rectify this problem?

    Thank you.

    Can you change
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    to
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    ?

    Ok. Well it works I was just wondering if there was a way to solve the problem. I have installed this a few times and the last time I was able to resolve the problem but I dont remember what I did. :(

    Thanks!
