    Hi,

    Start from yesterday for my file server, received a lot of email one by one with the same error message description, mainly part I copy here as follows.
    Code:
    =============================================================================

    chkservd attempts to connect to 127.0.0.1:21 in order to validate this service is functioning. If you have blocked connections with iptables or hosts.allow this failure may be a false positive. You should open the firewall to allow connection as root to 127.0.0.1:21 or disable checks of this service in the Service Manager using the Configure monitor settings link below. 
    ================================================================================
    These almost never happened before, and from yesterday, this same email sending one by one with 10-30 minutes inteval to my email address.
    Could anyone help on this?




    Regards,

    Hello :)

    The error message of importance is:
    What are the permissions on that ftp.users file? Did you run a recursive chmod at some point that would have changed the permissions of that file?

    Thank you.

    Hey there,

    So in this case I just need to modify the permission of this file, and everything would be ok?


    Regards,
    Alex
