Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ proftpd blocked in fedora 9

Posted by: ursvijay Oct 14 2008, 04:28 AM

Dear friends!

I installed proftpd on Fedora 9.

When I run proftpd using 'service proftpd start' a pop up comes as "SELinux AVC denial".

FTP attempts to local host through command prompts are denied.

The following the output.
[root@localhost tmp]# ftp
Connected to (
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection

I would be thankful if anyone could help me to overcome this.

Disable selinux.
