    [SOLVED] ProFTPD Issues: standalone mode and keepalives


    I'm using ProFTPD for the FTP service in a Debian Etch machine. I have a pair of questions about it.

    I'm unable to use it in standalone mode. When I switch to it, the service seems up successfully (no notices when restarting) but the service becomes unavailable. From the very begginning I used it through inetd, but I cannot change it and I know not why.

    The second thing is how to get rid of keepalives, not having to configure the clients to keep the connection active.

    Here's my proftpd.conf.

    Thanks in advance.
