Permission levels and ownership are like this: # ls -dl /var/run/proftpd drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Apr 16 20:19 /var/run/proftpd If you're starting from /etc/inetd.conf, you need to edit /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf and comment out the line that says: ServerType standalone and add a line that says: ServerType inetd See "man proftpd" for more details. regards, Robert _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
