Vsftpd service not listening in ipv4

vsftpd (very secure FTP daemon), is an FTP server for Unix-like systems, including Linux.

In some of the Linux systems, vsfptd service not listening on ipv4 address even after the correct installation and configuration. In such cases we need to manually enable ipv4 address in the vsftpd configuration.

Step1: Open vsftpd configuration file '/etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf'

#vi /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf

step2: Enable the standalone mode

listen=yes

Step3: Change the listen address.

listen_address=127.0.0.1

Step4: Save the configuration file and restart the service

#service vsftpd restart

That's all......
