Re: proftpd issues - Got it WORKING


Here is the output when UNC home directory is in the passwd entry:

NOTE:  For security purposes the server the proftpd software is running on
has been renamed to **SERVERNAME**.
The Domain to **DOMAIN** and Remote Server to **REMOTESERVERNAME** and
login id to **MYLOGINID**.

passwd entry:


Connected to **SERVERNAME**.**DOMAINNAME**.com.
220 ProFTPD 1.2.9rc1 Server (ProFTPD Default Installation)
Name (localhost:**MYLOGINID**):
331 Password required for **MYLOGINID**.
530 Login incorrect.
ftp: Login failed.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection

Attached is the strace.

(See attached file: strace_output.txt)

Hope this helps,
Brian Kelly

No, AFAICT, I have already address this problem in the following:

I guess so, but I don't really have the "itch."

Brian, would you be willing to help?  What do you mean by "validate" in
the following?

What is the exact error message in proftpd's log file when the home
directory is specified in UNC?
