    vsftpd won't start on red hat enterprise 5.7


    Hi, the problem I am getting is that vsftpd wont start on my red hat. The RPM is the default that is shipped with the OS and the vsftpd.conf file is the default file and I will provide this below. I am rather new with linux been working on it for about a month so please bare with me.

    Code:
    # Example config file /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
    #
    # The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file
    # loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.
    # Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults.
    #
    # READ THIS: This example file is NOT an exhaustive list of vsftpd options.
    # Please read the vsftpd.conf.5 manual page to get a full idea of vsftpd's
    # capabilities.
    #
    # Allow anonymous FTP? (Beware - allowed by default if you comment this out).
    anonymous_enable=YES
    #
    # Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
    local_enable=YES
    #
    # Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
    write_enable=YES
    #
    # Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,
    # if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)
    local_umask=022
    #
    # Uncomment this to allow the anonymous FTP user to upload files. This only
    # has an effect if the above global write enable is activated. Also, you will
    # obviously need to create a directory writable by the FTP user.
    #anon_upload_enable=YES
    #
    # Uncomment this if you want the anonymous FTP user to be able to create
    # new directories.
    #anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
    #
    # Activate directory messages - messages given to remote users when they
    # go into a certain directory.
    dirmessage_enable=YES
    #
    # The target log file can be vsftpd_log_file or xferlog_file.
    # This depends on setting xferlog_std_format parameter
    xferlog_enable=YES
    #
    # Make sure PORT transfer connections originate from port 20 (ftp-data).
    connect_from_port_20=YES
    #
    # If you want, you can arrange for uploaded anonymous files to be owned by
    # a different user. Note! Using "root" for uploaded files is not
    # recommended!
    #chown_uploads=YES
    #chown_username=whoever
    #
    # The name of log file when xferlog_enable=YES and xferlog_std_format=YES
    # WARNING - changing this filename affects /etc/logrotate.d/vsftpd.log
    #xferlog_file=/var/log/xferlog
    #
    # Switches between logging into vsftpd_log_file and xferlog_file files.
    # NO writes to vsftpd_log_file, YES to xferlog_file
    xferlog_std_format=YES
    #
    # You may change the default value for timing out an idle session.
    #idle_session_timeout=600
    #
    # You may change the default value for timing out a data connection.
    #data_connection_timeout=120
    #
    # It is recommended that you define on your system a unique user which the
    # ftp server can use as a totally isolated and unprivileged user.
    #nopriv_user=ftpsecure
    #
    # Enable this and the server will recognise asynchronous ABOR requests. Not
    # recommended for security (the code is non-trivial). Not enabling it,
    # however, may confuse older FTP clients.
    #async_abor_enable=YES
    #
    # By default the server will pretend to allow ASCII mode but in fact ignore
    # the request. Turn on the below options to have the server actually do ASCII
    # mangling on files when in ASCII mode.
    # Beware that on some FTP servers, ASCII support allows a denial of service
    # attack (DoS) via the command "SIZE /big/file" in ASCII mode. vsftpd
    # predicted this attack and has always been safe, reporting the size of the
    # raw file.
    # ASCII mangling is a horrible feature of the protocol.
    #ascii_upload_enable=YES
    #ascii_download_enable=YES
    #
    # You may fully customise the login banner string:
    #ftpd_banner=Welcome to blah FTP service.
    #
    # You may specify a file of disallowed anonymous e-mail addresses. Apparently
    # useful for combatting certain DoS attacks.
    #deny_email_enable=YES
    # (default follows)
    #banned_email_file=/etc/vsftpd/banned_emails
    #
    # You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
    # directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
    # users to NOT chroot().
    #chroot_list_enable=YES
    # (default follows)
    #chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd/chroot_list
    #
    # You may activate the "-R" option to the builtin ls. This is disabled by
    # default to avoid remote users being able to cause excessive I/O on large
    # sites. However, some broken FTP clients such as "ncftp" and "mirror" assume
    # the presence of the "-R" option, so there is a strong case for enabling it.
    #ls_recurse_enable=YES
    #
    # When "listen" directive is enabled, vsftpd runs in standalone mode and
    # listens on IPv4 sockets. This directive cannot be used in conjunction
    # with the listen_ipv6 directive.
    listen=YES
    #
    # This directive enables listening on IPv6 sockets. To listen on IPv4 and IPv6
    # sockets, you must run two copies of vsftpd whith two configuration files.
    # Make sure, that one of the listen options is commented !!
    #listen_ipv6=YES
    
    pam_service_name=vsftpd
    userlist_enable=YES
    tcp_wrappers=YES
    This is really urgent I have been trying to figure out what's wrong for about a week now.

    Thanks in advance !!

    What command are you using to try and start it?

    What output is displayed in the terminal after you try to start it (i.e., error messages)?

    What does this command tell you?
    Code:
    service vsftpd status
    What, if anything, is in /var/log/messages, related to vsftpd?

    Check to see that your installation of vsftpd is in tact:
    Code:
    rpm -qV vsftpd

    rpm -qV vsftpd
    I am using "service vsftpd start" to start the service.
    The error I am getting is "Starting vsftpd for vsftpd: FAILED"

    Here are the only messages related but these were from yesterday.

    Code:
    Aug 15 15:10:00 slave vsftpd[21363]: warning: can't get client address: Socket operation on non-socket
    Aug 15 15:11:32 slave vsftpd[21382]: warning: can't get client address: Socket operation on non-socket

    service vsftpd status come back with " vsftpd is stopped"

    finaly rpm -qv vsftpd gave back "vsftpd-2.0.5-21.el5"

    That is a capital "V" in the "rpm -qV vsftpd" command. It tells you if any files/dirs belonging to the package have been modified.

    Is your network adapter up?
    Code:
    ip a
    How about trying to start the binary directly:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/vsftpd
    Is there anything in /var/log/secure or /var/log/xferlog?

    Hardcore: you could try to strace the program:
    Code:
    strace /usr/sbin/vsftpd

    The capital V didn't return a value

    Yes my network adapter is up

    starting the binary file direct doesn't work

    This is what was in the /var/log/secure file and I didn't have a /var/log/xferlog file

    Code:

    Okay, nothing returned with rpm -qV means the package is pristine = good.

    You can download the strace program, you may need it:
    Code:
    yum install strace
    You can also try disabling SELinux to see if that makes a difference.

    Check if enabled:
    Code:
    getenforce
    If enabled, temporarily disable it:
    Code:
    setenforce 0

    Well, strace won't make it work - it should just output a bunch of debugging output that would hopefully give you a clue as to what is going on with vsftpd. Feel free to post the strace output here, although I may not be much help parsing it, somebody else might come along who could..

    Have you put anything in your tcp_wrappers config files, /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny? I don't know why that would be a problem, but it is one of the last things listed in your strace output.

    Also, is there ANY output when you run /usr/sbin/vsftpd by itself?

    EDIT: Is anything else already listening on the default FTP port (21)?
    Code:
    netstat -tulnp|grep :21
