Hello every thing is all right! Port security/heimdal installs its own ftpd with its appropriate manpages. Whenever I read the manpage, I got this heimdal-installed one and so, the whole configuration for FreeBSD's own ftpd daemon was bullshit according to the heimdal's version. especially the missing option "-D" (necessary for FreeBSD's ftpd going into daemon mode) and much more crucial, -a, which reflects the IP address listening on for FreeBSD's ftpd and for heimdal's one reflecting the authentication method (-a plain for plaintext). So, this maybe for the record. I guess in rare caeses others could run into this trap, too.
