    My proftpd.conf file looks like so:

    Code:
    #
    # /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf -- This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file.
    # To really apply changes reload proftpd after modifications.
    #
    
    # Includes DSO modules
    Include /etc/proftpd/modules.conf
    
    # Set off to disable IPv6 support which is annoying on IPv4 only boxes.
    UseIPv6                         on
    # If set on you can experience a longer connection delay in many cases.

    Can someone please explain to me why I continue to get the following message upon logging in?

    Code:
    220 ProFTPD 1.3.1 Server (Debian) [::ffff:192.168.1.30]

    Shouldn't I be getting:

    Code:
    220 FTP Server ready.


    Now, when I log in from my server's command prompt:

    Code:
    ftp localhost
    I get:

    Code:
    220 FTP Server ready.
    It's ONLY when I log in via a third-party FTP client using my domain.tld that I get the entire string as above...

    You should try to put the serverident line into global tags.
