    Hi Gabriel,

    first of all thank you for such a comprehensive manuals – they are just great.

    I think I found a little typo:
    pasv_max_port=15000
    pasv_min_port=15500

    It should be in reversed order – max 15500 and min 15000.

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for nice article

    i think “#” does not need on page 4

    # get vsftpd.conf.pdf

    • @Jalal,
      The pound sign, as used here, is a write-up convention to indicate that’s a command that should be typed in the terminal.
      If you mean this specific command does not need to be run as root, you’re right.
      @Ravi
      Please confirm.

        @Jalal,

        Like @Gabriel, said the signs are used for command indication only and you’re absolutely right, the pound sign is not necessary to have when using with ftp commands.

      • Axel says:

        What I understand from Jalal’s comment, is that the get command is written inside the ftp console, so the pound sign cannot be there. Instead it should be “ftp> get vsftpd.conf.pdf”.

        Correct me if I’m mistaken.

        • Gabriel A. Cánepa says:

          I believe you’re right. Having the pound sign there may lead to confusion, as it is not actually a Linux command but a FTP one. Perhaps a clarification at the proper place in this article should do the trick.
