I've installed proftpd on my droplet, successfully started it, and tried to access it remotely thru: >ftp 126.96.36.199 and get ftp: connection timed out nmap shows: Starting Nmap 6.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-06-11 15:43 UTC Nmap scan report for admin.lakesentry.net (188.8.131.52) Host is up (0.00060s latency). Not shown: 997 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 21/tcp open ftp 22/tcp open ssh 3690/tcp open svn
Initially I told it to use inetd vs. standalone, but changed that later in the config file after documentation directed standalone…So proftpd.conf shows:
ServerName “http://184.108.40.206” ServerType standalone DeferWelcome off
