Alright, I did the .99 update, thinking this might address some issues I had with ftp, but at this point, I continue to effectively be unable to connect via ftp to servers I freshly created.
This is on a virgin CentOS 4.2 installation, with VirtualMin Pro recently updated to 2.99.
I deleted the test domain I previously strggled with, in order to create it anew, to even eliminate the issues of permissions, etc...
So, I create a new virtual domain (I like the improvements). I make sure proFTPd is running - it is (I previously set it to autostart). I fire up my ftp client (Transmit, on Mac OS X).
I use the main admin user/passwd. I try regular ftp - I get 'login incorrect' error. I try sftp - cycles forever, no resolution. I try ftp with implicit SSL - I get connection refused. I try ftp with TLS/SSL - I get AUTH not understood.
Okay, this is totally ridiculous - I refuse to believe that I am the only person with these problems, and asking to be able to ftp into a server is not really too much to ask, right?
If you want, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll pass along the login information for this account, or even for the server (it's just there for testing this), so you can check what the heck is going there.
Whatever it is, this is very frustrating.
