I installed proftpd on my opensuse 11.1 and since I needed a personal FTP server, I followed the steps on "THE PERFECT SERVER" series. I installed proftpd-1.3.2a, and everything on the installation went perfect, but when I try to log, after accepting the user name and password, it stops and I have this output: (from filezilla) Code: Status: Connecting to 220.127.116.11:21... Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
