ProFTP login failed

Post by tfmeier »

I have enabled ProFTP via the DietPI UI but can't logon via `root`. I'm using WinSCP on Windows, use FTP as the protocol and the default port of 21. The password is correct as I'm able to login via ssh.

Do I need to make any further configurations on DietPI to allow this FTP access?

Hi,

by default root login is disabled. You would need to use user dietpi

That's the respective part from config file /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf

Code: Select all

RootLogin off
User dietpi
As well you can have a look to our online docs https://dietpi.com/docs/software/file_servers/#proftpd
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
