How to Install ProFTPd + TLS On Ubuntu/debian/mint
The TLS protocol allows client/server applications to communicate across a network in a way designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, and message forgery. TLS provides endpoint authentication and communications confidentiality over the Internet using cryptography. TLS provides RSA security with 1024 and 2048 bit strengths.
ProFTPD is a FTP server, it uses only one configuration file “/etc/proftpd.conf”. The ProFTPD config file is very similar to Apache’s config file. It can be used to configure multiple virtual FTP servers easily, and has chroot capabilities depending on the underlying filesystem. It can run as standalone server or inetd service. It’s able to work over IPv6.
Its design is modular, which enabled writing SSL/TLS encryption, RADIUS, LDAP and SQL extensions as modules.
In this tutorial we will show you how to install Proftpd+TLS
Now let`s install protpd , so open a terminal and type the command :
Sudo apt-get install propftpd openssl
Now we have to edit proftpd config file
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."
Now Create this directory;
and generate the SSL certificate with this command :
openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -out /etc/proftpd/openssl/proftpd.cert.pem -keyout /etc/proftpd/openssl/proftpd.key.pem
you will get something like to apply :
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:
Locality Name (eg, city) :
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) :
Common Name (eg, YOUR name) :
Email Address : <-- Enter your Email Address.
Now enable TLS In ProFTPd, to do that edit proftpd config file :
now open /etc/proftpd/tls.conf
Now restart the proftpd server:
Start your ftp client and connect
