    Hi all!

    My name is David I'm new here but not using cpanel :)

    I have a little prob with this service checker, I changed my FTP port from 21 to other, for secuirty reasons, and i'm receiving one email each 5 mins from
    ChkServd, I take a look to the file in this exactly line, but is not defined there the port.

    I entered to
    /etc/chkserv.d/ftpd

    and modify the port in the first line and restart the ChkServd with this command

    /scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd

    But still sending emails...

    The email I receive is the following =>

    Failure Reason: Unable to connect to connect to 21 on 127.0.0.1: Connection refused: connect: Connection refused ...propagated at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/TailWatch/ChkServd.pm line 454.


    Greetens! and thanks!

    Please try connecting to ftp port 21 using telnet. If you are not able to connect port 21 then check if ftp service is stop or if port 21 is blocked behind server firewall.
