You are trying to connect to localhost... Probably (most likely) 127.0.0.1.

Well, the SERVER="-S 192.168.0.2,21" line in your config file is making pure-ftpd binding only to the interface with that address...

Try ftping to 192.168.0.2:21 or try removing that line from the config file (so that pure-ftpd will bind to all interfaces)...

Regards, sena.

hmm, this may be a dumb question, but if one removes that, what will be the address to connect to it? your ip?

After removing that line, the service will be available from every IP address on every interface of the machine...

So, you can choose whichever IP address suits you best... 8)

The reason the line is there at all is so, for example, if you had two links, one to a local network ( 192.168.1.* ) and the other to the internet at large ( 203.56.8.1, for example ), you could restrict the ftp access so that only local area people could log in and leech your stuff.

A lot of system daemons use this functionality. :-)

Ahhh, that explains it, thanks a lot. That is what I am probably going to do to setup up a small critical-file backup on the linux machine without having to do samba or something like that.
