I have installed vsftpd on my server. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

When I try to connect using FileZilla I am getting this message:

Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".

I have set this in my /etc/vsftpd.conf:

anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES

ftp allowed users list: /etc/vsftpd.chroot_list

in this list I have:

testuser

ftp disallowed users list: /etc/ftpusers

root
daemon
bin
sys
sync
games
man
lp
mail
news
uucp
nobody

in my /etc/shells I have:

/bin/sh
/bin/dash
/bin/bash
/bin/rbash
/usr/bin/screen
/bin/tcsh

I am able to login to this account via ssh.

What am I missing?!

Did you get this figured out? I'm running into a similar issue. –  Stephen Watkins Feb 18 '13 at 22:29
    
I honestly do not remember what I did. I'm too old to remember that far back. Sorry :( –  ErocM Sep 18 '13 at 2:54
