I found a solution on the net. <br> <br>Here it is: <br> <br>1. login as root (or sudo…) and do the following: <br> <br>2. apt-get install python-software-properties <br> <br>3. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thefrontiergroup/vsftpd <br> <br>4. sudo apt-get update <br> <br>5. sudo apt-get install vsftpd <br> <br>6. vi /etc/vsftpd.conf and add the following <br>allow_writeable_chroot=YES <br> <br>7. sudo service vsftpd restart

How did you set it up?


just turn off your ‘firewall’
