    I have configured pure ftpd to accept TLS connections. I can connect using a local account from the sever securely and clear text, but cant connect from ispc3 site ftp users securely, can do clear text. Any insite to this? Thanks

    Please enable logging in pure-ftpd and then check the logfiles which error message gets logged.

    Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

    Yes falko, I've tried both, it is getting really frustrating. I can connect using my internal IP but not external.

    Ok,. So thats a problem of your router an not your server. Please check that you forwarded the ftp port and all ports within your passive ftp port range from the router to the server.

    I followed this guide to activate passive port range

    echo "40110 40210" > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/PassivePortRange
    /etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart
    and added the range to my router, and Im still not able to connect.
