I emerged proftpd and it installed, and this is what happened:

Code:

root@KallNet root # /etc/init.d/proftpd start
 * Starting proftpd...
KallNet - Fatal: unable to determine IP address of `KallNet'.             [ !! ]


I put in all the config files Bind and my ipaddress, even treid giving the proftp usergroup root access... any ideas?

I didnt' see that, I missed the FAQ, thanks..
my question is, how would I fix it? it says:

Quote:

The hosting machine has a poorly configured hostname setup to the point where the resolver library cannot determine the IP from the name. Solutions include, fixing the DNS for the domain, fixing the hostname, fixing the /etc/hosts file. Which one works for you will largely depend on your OS and exactly what is wrong.



My hostname is just kallnet, would this be fixed by using my kalldrexx.shacknet.nu as the hostname?

What does your /etc/hosts file look like?

Yeah, update it to read
Code:

127.0.0.1       localhost
<your ip>      kallnet


Then, test it by doing something simple like pinging yourself.
