    I am having the following problem. I have a domain that has the ip that is different as the main ip.

    Now if I create a ftp account and I want to login I get a password error.

    for example:


    In the messages log there is this error:
    Nov 26 20:33:20 cpanel proftpd[23473]: PAM-listfile: Couldn't open /etc/ftpusers
    Nov 26 20:33:20 cpanel PAM_pwdb[23473]: check pass; user unknown

    now if I use the main ip it lets me login correctly.

    Now I am sure this is not correct. Can somebody tell me if I am doing something wrong.
