    Sorry for my english but i'm french ...

    I' have a problem with proftpd.

    It's impossible connect on my serveur . Always connection timeout.

    WinSock 2.0 -- OpenSSL 0.9.8e 23 Feb 2007
    [R] Connecting to sXXXXXXXXXX.onlinehome.fr -> DNS=sXXXXXXXX4.onlinehome.fr IP=XXX.XXX.XXX.XX PORT=21
    [R] Connected to sXXXXXXXXX.onlinehome.fr
    [R] Connection failed (Connection lost)
    [R] Delaying for 120 seconds before reconnect attempt #1

    Thanks for your help .

    Make sure that:
    1. Proftpd is running and is listening on port 21:
    telnet localhost 21 (on FTP)

    netstat -antp |grep :21

    /etc/init.d/xinetd status (if it is running via xinetd)
    /etc/init.d/proftpd status (if it is running without xinetd)

    2. If proftpd is running and listening on port 21, make sure that firewall does not block connections on port 21

    3. If it is not firewall either then check xinetd log, proftpd log, /var/log/messages for errors/warnings that appear when connection to FTP server fails.
