    To all,

    Need your help. I'm using Plesk 8.0 for linux. All the time, all services were working but
    last Mar.2,2009 I encountered this error everytime ftp session was requested.

    # ftp <server name>
    Connected to *******.
    - unknown option: a
    Name (server name:jerry):

    Everytime I entered my username it shows.

    Name (server name:jerry): jerry
    usage: proftpd [options]
    Login failed.

    ftp> bye
    421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection

    Already restarted inetd, as well as psa and the entire server.


    What else do I need to check.

    Please advise.

    Thank you very much.

    if inetd not working try to use the proftp

    edit /etc/proftpd.conf

    change Servetype from inetd to Standalone

    kill first the current ftp process

    linux:# lsof -i tcp:21
    COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
    inetd 25261 root 0u IPv4 452954 TCP *:ftp (LISTEN)

    linux:# kill 25261

    then run the proftp

    linux:# /usr/sbin/proftpd

    it should work...
