    I am not sure where I made my mistake everything went well until the final testing. I was able to log in with putty and finish the set up, I logged into phpmyadmin with my domain name and when I typed in my domain name into a browser I get the apache server default web page that says (It Works!). When I tried to log in with any of the ftp client programs I get a message like- connection refused by server or connection aborted by software in the host machine. I have tried several different ftp client programs on windows and linux workstations without any luck. I tried using port 20 and 21 but it just seems like it won't accept the testuser and password.:confused:

    Any errors in your logs?
    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    and
    Code:
    iptables -L
    ?

    Netstat and iptables

    Netstat -tap :
    Active Internet connections (servers and established)
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
    tcp 0 0 localhost.localdo:mysql *:* LISTEN 2230/mysqld
    tcp 0 0 *:sunrpc *:* LISTEN 1926/portmap
    tcp 0 0 *:auth *:* LISTEN 2400/inetd

    iptables -L:
    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)

    Hostname problem

    I have also received error messages that my hostname could not be resolved.
    My dns provider claims that this should not be a problem and I should be able to access my ftpserver without it. I am not so sure, everything looks like localhost.localdomain only.

    I don't see ftp here which means vsftpd isn't running. Please start it and try again.

    vsftpd.conf error

    I could not find my error so I completely redid my vsftpd.conf file. The ftp server now shows up on netstat -tap:
    ftp1:/# netstat -tap
    Active Internet connections (servers and established)
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
    tcp 0 0 localhost.localdo:mysql *:* LISTEN 2227/mysqld
    tcp 0 0 *:sunrpc *:* LISTEN 1925/portmap
    tcp 0 0 *:auth *:* LISTEN 2398/inetd
    tcp 0 0 *:ftp *:* LISTEN 3170/vsftpd
    tcp 0 0 *:52405 *:* LISTEN 2434/rpc.statd
    tcp 0 0 localhost.localdom:smtp *:* LISTEN 2385/exim4
    tcp6 0 0 *:www *:* LISTEN 2480/apache2
    tcp6 0 0 *:ssh *:* LISTEN 2408/sshd
    tcp6 0 0 ftp1.xxxxxxxxx13.co:ssh ::ffff:192.168.0:kermit ESTABLISHED2627/0

    I am now connecting up and getting login screens but I am now receiving a 530 error and a message that the server is rejecting the username and password . Testuser and the password are showing up in the phpadmin program any suggestions?

    Please compare your configuration to the one from the tutorial. Maybe you made a typo somewhere.
