    Hi, everyone.

    I just installed vsftpd and one problem and a question.

    a) the problem

    me:/Users/me root# vsftpd &

    500 OOPS: vsftpd: not configured for standalone, must be started from inetd

    Actually, vsftpd is *not* configured to run as standalone, I have "listen=YES" in /etc/vsftpd.conf

    It seems that vsftpd is trying to read other file. I checked the entire system and I don't have any duplicate for vsftpd.conf

    However, I did start it using vsftpd /etc/vsftpd.conf &

    Any idea why I must tell where the config file is all the time?

    b) the question

    I don't allow anonymous access, and that part was easy to configure. :)

    But I have three computers with 3 different IPs on the network and they will all link to the server, plus me (by local connection).

    How do I create four users (each one for each IP, plus one for local access)? It seems that users created from System preferences cannot login.

    And how do I tell vsftpd that each of the remote IPs must look in specific folders (/Users/ftp/one, /Users/ftp/two, Users/ftp/three) and see nothing else but their specific folders?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Bogdan

    a) Problem solved.

    vsftpd doesn't look for .conf file in /etc, but in /opt/local/etc/

    So make sure that you have vsftpd.conf there, unless you clearly specify that it should look for the files in other location.

    ... still don't have answer for b) :)
