    Hi gang,

    I just set up a new FTP server on my Network, behind a NetGear MR814v2 Wireless router. I'm using PureFTPd. I set to PASV mode and set the port range to 1024-5000. All seems fine until my friend tries to connect and gets this message -

    Aug 25 20:35:37 localhost pure-ftpd: (?@?) [ERROR] Sorry, but that file doesn't exist: [/etc/pure-ftpd/ssl/pure-ftpd.pem]

    What is this file [/etc/pure-ftpd/ssl/pure-ftpd.pem]
    that its looking for?

    Thanks for any help.

    That's an issue with PureFTPd, so I'd ask on the PureFTPd mailing list (send mail to list-subscribe at to subscribe).
