    I am receiving an error when trying to use the web-ftp application. I receive the following error: Could not connect to localhost

    and there is a Next >> link

    The link does nothing but takes me back to the same error page.

    This means that either your ftp daemon is not started or not listening on localhost.

    It's started and running because I tested it. As far as using localhost, I followed the documentation for configuration to the letter. How do I check to make sure its using localhost?

    Another thing is, I can login with ftp via command line but when I use any client, it will not connect. It times out. I dont know why.

    ProFTPd is listening on all interfaces. Do you have a firewall or router that is blocking the FTP ports?
    Did you try active and passive transfers in your FTP client?
