    [SOLVED] ProFTPD Issues: standalone mode and keepalives


    Hello,

    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.

    Code:
    # proftpd.conf
