Default Issue running vsftpd on OpenBSD 6.0 and 6.1

I've been running vsftpd on OpenBSD for a number of years. It's been working fine on 5.7, 5.8, and 5.9. My vsftpd.conf file is very simple (minimal changes).

Here are the uncommented bits in vsftpd.conf
Code:
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=006
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
idle_session_timeout=420
nopriv_user=_vsftpd
chroot_local_user=YES
secure_chroot_dir=/var/empty
pasv_min_port=49152
pasv_max_port=65535
text_userdb_names=YES
listen=YES
I have a single user account tuser01 with the shell set to /sbin/nologin
The tuser01 account is a member of group ftpusers. The home folder is for tuser is /storage01/ftpudata/tuser01 which is owned by root:ftpusers with permissions set to 750

I have added /sbin/nologin to /etc/shells

The above configuration works on all of my OpenBSD boxes except 6.0 and 6.1. On 5.9 boxes I run some with ftp and others with ftps with no issues.

The vsftpd daemon runs but at login I receive "500 OOPS: priv_sock_get_result" Connection closed by remote host.


Any insight would be helpful.

Hello, and welcome!

The vsftpd package has been at version 3.0.3 since OpenBSD 5.8, which indicates to me that your problem is not necessarily a problem with vsftpd itself. I would guess -- never having used the application -- that your PF configuration may be interfering with communication.

If you don't receive any real help here in the next fiew days, I recommmend you reach out to Benoit, the maintainer. You'll find his Email address with $ pkg_info vsftpd.

Thanks for the reply.

I don't think PF is involved. I eliminated that early on by disabling PF completely 'pfctl -d'.

As I said I can take this same config and put it on 5.9 and it works every time. It's pretty spooky.

I will take your advice and give it a bit and see if others weigh in.

I did reach out to Benoit a few months back via email but I didn't get a reply.

I decided to wait until 6.1 came out and see if the behavior changed.

I could try him again if need be.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. Very appreciated.

Sorry you had trouble reaching him. Perhaps your Email didn't reach him, or ended up filtered as spam. Should you fail to reach him a second time, try via the ports@ mailing list.
