Strange FTP Connection Problem

Strange FTP Connection Problem


I’m running DirectAdmin on a VPS.

I have 2 IP’s. One is assigned to one account, the other is shared.

On the shared IP there are 3 accounts assigned.

The first account I assigned to this shared IP works fine, I can connect to FTP just fine, access it via the domain name assigned to the site via a web browser etc.

However, the other 2 accounts, I can’t connect to them via FTP.


Status: Selected port usually in use by a different protocol.
Status: Resolving address of
Status: Connecting to IP ADDRESS
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message…

Then I get


Error: Connection timed out
Error: Could not connect to server

The IP ADDRESS above being displayed is correct.

I have disabled the firewall, no change.
I have checked /etc/proftpd.passwd and the accounts appear to be listed.

I am unsure what the problem is.

Could someone give me a hand here?
