    We told you to post using code tags - you did not.

    Please use code tags for printouts and commands. Advanced editor, '#'

    You make thus more difficult for us to respond.

    Your configuration is bad.

    I'm going to ask everyone to calm down here - there's no need to get
    personal.

    The participants in the thread are trying to help, but need your help to
    provide you with assistance. Part of that includes posting using the
    "code" tags as suggested, because otherwise the output from the logs is
    basically unreadable.

    To insert code tags in your post, use the "Advanced Editor" and press the
    "#" button.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Although I have not contributed to this thread, I'm sorry you feel this way. There are people here to help you but I
    think you're just going to have to accept that some of them are more prickly than others .

    While I have on occasionally complained that the forum is a little stuffy, I don't think anyone here is trying to insult
    you. Most helpers here are busy, and volunteer time to help others. Usually the troubleshooting routine (especially for
    beginners) goes in three stages: acquiring information (i.e. you need to provide more details), investigating issues
    (generally meaning having to type odd things into consoles), and attempting solutions.

    Some of the more prickly characters can be a little abrupt requesting information and be prescriptive in the way want
    you to present the information. They don't do this because they are wanting to insult you, but because it's the most
    efficient means for them to help you. If however you genuinely feel that you being treated offensively, then you should
    report the offending post.

    We were all a `noob' at some point and no `noob' should be denied the respect normally afforded to users, but please
    also understand that being a `noob' gains you no extra privileges either. The `code tags' are essentially a netiquette
    feature to present information in a way that everyone can read as monospaced code rather than as text. This means
    characters align properly whether you are viewing the post using Firefox, Knode, or tin.

    `Code tags' should be placed at either end of a section of code. While writing a forum post within a web-browser, you
    will notice a button with a `hash' above the editing text box. If you push that button, that will generate the code
    tags, that will flag the region of code so it appears correctly to everyone viewing your post. You should preview your
    post before posting it, just to make sure it looks right before committing.

    Although it's good form to properly format results in CODE tags, I personally don't require it if the information is clear.

    The error should be clear although why is another matter, ProFTP isn't able to bind to a network interface and address. Maybe try installing pureftp instead at least temporarily?

    Occurred to me, maybe you're installing of a DVD and not actively connected to a network?

    Also occured to me and is perhpas most likely...

    You likely already have an FTP Server app installed using the required interface and ports.

    To verify, see what is installed by looking for the "i" to the left of the results from the following command

    Code:
    # zypper se ftp
    For anything that includes a Server, do a "zypper rm"
    Code:
    # zypper rm <packagename> <packagename2>
    When you have only an ftp client or no ftp apps at all installed, then try installing proftp again.

    thanks tsu2 for the responce and help

    as for your comment on the DVD. there is no DVD in the drive, double checked to make sure so its def installed.

    Its possible that there other FTP programs is the problem. I have installed multiple FTP servers trying to get something going. but none of them are enabled. not sure if that could be the issue still or not. I will check it out once I get a new power supply, since mine fried over the weekend
