    has anyone gotten ispconfig to work with vsftp? does anyone even know how its supposed to work? so far, ive determined that the installer does the following on a sles9 system:

    - moves /etc/xinitd.d/vsftpd to /etc, which essentially keeps vsftp from starting if you're using xinitd.

    - creates /etc/vsftpd_127.0.0.1.conf and /etc/vsftpd_<eth0_ip_addr>.conf, which doesnt seem to matter, since vsftp only looks at vsftp.conf.

    am i supposed to set up vsftp to run in standalone mode now? the documentation claims i can use xinitd. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

    ok, i got vsftp to accept connections by doing this:

    cp vsftpd_xinetd.backup_08_31_2005__17_35_37 /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd
    but now this happens:

    > ftp [email protected]
    Connected to
    220 (vsFTPd 1.2.1)
    530 This FTP server is anonymous only.
    ftp: Login failed.
    it seems there's a disconnect somewhere between ispconfig and vsftp.
