I have set up vsftpd on numerous Ubuntu boxes without any problems, but in this particular case I am having a heck of a time getting it to work for some reason.
When I attempt to connect from another computer using FTP it allows me to enter a username and password, but then immediately responds with "500 OOPS: Connection closed by remote host."
I have tried many different configuration settings and always have the same result. Also after disabling the firewall completely. Nothing appears in the log file other than:
Thu Jan 24 15:00:24 2013 [pid 2] CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.109"
Where 192.168.1.109 of course is the address of the computer I'm connecting from. No actual errors to speak of.
I can't seem to find any instance of anyone having this exact problem. Suggested solutions to other similar problems have no effect. Can anyone offer some suggestions regarding things I might not be considering?
And any more information I should provide, just let me know. Thanks in advance!
