    vsftp error on Oleg 7g

    Hi all, anyone can help?
    vsftp working fine on Oleg 7f. After upgraed to 7g, the vsftp unable to connect shown error :

    500 OOPS: vsftpd: not configured for standalone, must be started from inetd. Connection closed by remote host.

    I have searched the web but seems only me having this issue : (

    Try adding (or changing) the line:

    Code:
    listen=YES
    to your vsftpd.conf file. This should allow it to run in standalone mode so that it is running all the time.

    An alternative is to install xinetd which is a more advanced version of inetd. This is a program that listens for incoming connections and starts vsftpd or any other server only when a request is recieved, this means that the servers only run when needed saving memory etc. There are other advantages as well.

    Code:
    ipkg install xinetd
    and then create a file called vsftpd in /opt/etc/xinetd.d/ containing:

    Code:
    # description: The vsftpd FTP server serves FTP connections.
    # it uses normal, unencrypted usernames and passwords for auth
    service ftp
    {
    disable = no
    socket_type = stream
    user = sensi
    server = /opt/sbin/vsftpd
    server_args = /opt/etc/vsftpd.conf
    wait = no
    nice = 10
    only_from = 0.0.0.0/0
    }
    I have xinetd to configured to start samba, swat, dropbear, vsftpd and rsync.

I was very frustrated, I step by step search the reason, FINALLY, i reformat my HD, and only 2 mins, I have the vsftp back. <CRY>
