HowTo: Fix Fedora 17 FTP server on VM

vsftpd saying 500 OOPS: priv_sock_get_cmd (after update?..) (Page 1) / Networking, Server, and Protection / Arch Linux Forums

There is an obscure, non selinux, problem with Fedora vsftpd when running on a VM.

Below is a one line fix that will save you lots of debug time :)

The log file will report various selinux failures, but that is NOT the problem. The ftp sessions will get a few error messages, and be dropped from the server.

It occurs when running Fedora in a VM.

yum -y install vsftpd
vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
