    SuSe 10 and vsftpd


    Hi all! Been some time since I have posted. Been running a simple web page and ftp site using FC4 for some time. A freind convinced me to try SuSe 10 and since I like a challenge here I am. I set up a machine, loaded SuSe, hosed YaST trying to get proftpd going, reloaded SuSE and decided to go with vsftpd since it comes with the distro.

    I have the ftp site up and running but for all the Googling I can handle cannot seem to get it to allow anonymous upload. The site is ftp.thefractalfarm.net. I checked the folders in /srv/ftp and all the permissions are set to allow User View and Modify, with rename and delete assigned to owner (root). I am posting netstat -tap and my vsftpd.conf in hopes someone can see what I am missing/doing wrong. Let me know if you need anything else!

    well... I rebooted my SuSe machine and now cannot connect... Via Internet is just continuously shows "Beginning FTP transaction..." via WS_FTP I get "500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv4 socket" which is also what I get with
    Code:
    server1:~ # /usr/sbin/vsftpd &
    500 OOPS: could not bind listening IPv4 socket
    [1] 5932
    [1]   Exit 1                  /usr/sbin/vsftpd
    server1:~ #
