I'll start by saying I'm an id01t.

This whole time I've been using

Code: Select all

FTP username@ip
when I should have been using

Code: Select all

vsftpd username@ip
I opened the Ubuntu shell on my windows 10 laptop and tried

Code: Select all

vsftpd username@ip
It's not working. I'm getting

Code: Select all

500 OOPS: cannot read config file: username@ip
I feel so stupid. This is most likely why I've been having problems while trying to connect from my ISP in Mexico.... I'm such a dunce.

Where should I start TrevorH?

vsftpd is the daemon that listens for connections and provides ftp services. It's not an ftp client.
