edited April 2018 in Tutorials


If you try to connect pureFTPD, but you see in your error logs something like this [WARNING] Sorry, cleartext sessions are not accepted on this server. #043 Please reconnect using SSL/TLS security mechanisms.

You can follow this simple step to solve it :
1. login to your root account
2. open pureftpd conf
nano /etc/pure-fptd/pure-ftpd.conf
3. change line from TLS 2to TLS 0
4. Then save your configuration
5. Restart your pureftpd

Now, you can connect to your ftp
