Title: How to Change Your FTP Port ?
Post by: saurabhj on July 29, 2015, 07:40:19 PM
If you want to change your FTP port then follow the steps :


1) Edit /etc/pure-ftpd.conf and look for the following line:

Before :
Bind 21

After   :
Bind 20
Note : 20 is the new port we used put the service on.

2) If necessary, add the new FTP port to your server's firewall.

3) Edit /etc/chkserv.d/ftpd and change the port, which is the first comma-separated entry to the right of '=' on the line in the file, to match the port you put the service on.


1) Edit /etc/proftpd.conf and change:
Port 21

2) Then make sure to test to make sure FTP is working before notifying your users !
