    It shouldn't be listening on localhost only unless you want no one but the server itself to connect.

    If anything it should be so it allows connection from other hosts.

    I haven't checked ISPC but if it conencts via the servers network IP and not localhost then this is why it's failing.
    Configure proftpd to use instead of localhost.

    What's in /etc/hosts and /etc/proftpd.conf?

    The Server also listens on the correct Name as listed on Page 3 of this Thread, so external connects are available, I only showed the one entry above because of the reqzuest that should be added.

    @Falko, das ganze ist von seite 3 nicht geandert!
    The info is already on page 3 of this thread which I have not changed.!

    Hi Falco, it suddenly dawned on me about the localhost thing...

    In the proftpd.conf, we always used the following:

    I then changed this to use "localhost" instead:

    And all was ok. WebFTP is working and the Service now see's a "GREEN"

    This also will ONLY work when "SocketBindTight on" is set in the Server config.

    Does this make any sense to you?

    I guess if it's working, it's ok. :)
