    Hallo,

    I am trying to login with ftp on my pleskserver but it does not work.

    When i try to connect it say's:

    SmartFTP v1.5.988.36
    Resolving host name "86.39.X.X"
    Connecting to 86.39.X.X Port: 21
    Connected to 86.39.X.X.
    Cannot login waiting to retry (30s)...
    Server closed connection

    With dos ftp I get this:

    ftp> open 86.39.X.X
    Connected to 86.39.X.X.
    Connection closed by remote host.

    I user plesk reloaded 7.5 Linux version

    It does not give an error about a username or something...

    What could this be? I already rebooted the server.

    SmartFTP v1.5.988.36
    Resolving host name "86.39.X.X"
    Connecting to 86.39.X.X Port: 21
    Connected to 86.39.X.X.
    220 ProFTPD 1.2.10 Server (ProFTPD) [86.39.X.X]
    USER globalxxx
    331 Password required for globalxxx.
    PASS (hidden)
    530 Login incorrect.
    QUIT
    221 Goodbye.

    Hi, I solved the prolem very easy.

    Make sure your hostname of the server is submitted in dns.

    example:

    Hostname of the server is host.hostingserver.com

    that should be in dns resolving to the servers ip

    second:

    The ftp is going to look in 2 files for password check. shadow and passwd

    if there is no shadow file try at the promt of you linux server "shadowconfig on"

    that did it for me.

    Hope I did help

    Regards,
    Joeri

    Follow up

    Ok the DNS seems fine.

    Now, what I'd like to know is the path to execute shadowconfig in SSH mode...cause I can't see if the files are there or not...

    Thanks!
