I've installed proftpd on my droplet, successfully started it, and tried to access it remotely thru: >ftp 198.199.71.29 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 (198.199.71.29) Host is up (0.00060s latency).

Is proftpd running and listening on port 22?

What does (netstat -plutn | grep ftp) output?
