I want to run wu-FTP on ports 3000 and 3001. I've put in my

ftptest-data    3001/tcp # data port
ftptest         3000/tcp # command port

in my /etc/inetd.conf:

ftptest stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/tcpd  in.wuftpd -P3001
-l -a

All the users who logon external with their name and password can login
succesfull. But as soon as they want to change dir or give an 'ls'
command, the server returns an Invalid Port Command - error.. If the
same users login from the internal network everything goes perfect..
What is the problem here?

1. Solaris ftp v Pro-ftp v WU-ftp

One-year newbie Solaris admin here. (And four yrs Linux experience extra,
that count extra credit?)

Management thinks they want an internet ftp server for the company.
they're mgt, and 'I serve at their pleasure'.. and paycheck. My questions:

1). why use a package like ProFTP or WU-ftp, instead of Solaris 2.6 ftp,
seems to me easy enough to use and cfg? (I'd ask them why, but that'd be
as 'a bad thing'.)
2). which FTP is 'better'? I've heard of WU-ftp security holes, but am not
with Pro-FTP problems.
3). is there a better way to go?

I'm guessing this is for external customer browser convenience, which will
make me
RTFMs soon enough, yet any other comments, suggestions, or insights would be
appreciated. Thank you.
