I am running Ubuntu server 10.04.1 on an x86 box, and all seems ok, however, I have also installed apache2 and proftpd, and configured them as per documentation.
I am having problems when I download non-text files (Binaries, images, etc) they appear to be treated as text, resulting in an unusable file received by the client machine. I have tried both vsftpd and currently proftpd on the server with the same result. When downloading files using http (from the Apache server) the same thing occurs. I tried removing ufw (the firewall) and rebooting, but it made no difference. It seems that the problem lies within Ubuntu itself, and it is a serious problem, as it makes this machine useless as a web server.
Is there a fix and what is it please?
