rm /etc/proftpd/ssh_host*

ssh-keygen -f /etc/proftpd/ssh_host_rsa_key -N ‘’ -t rsa -m PEM

ssh-keygen -f /etc/proftpd/ssh_host_ecdsa_key -N ‘’ -t ecdsa -m PEM

/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

Thanks for your help. I’ve been trying to get it to work for two days.


It’s been a bug there that we have already fixed in our production environment but haven’t released it yet.

Have a look at this post.

Hello, Ilia,

Yes, the information comes from this post and the modification is already done.

I just fixed the problem I encountered, I have to change the port of the Proftpd server from 21 to 2222.

The connection is now done without any problem.

Thank you for your help.
