Proftpd with TLS/SSL on etch

hello together,
I tried to install a higher version of proftpd than the old-stable 1.30 from the etch-backports and got the message that the package virtualmin-base will be removed…(not a good idea???)
is there a way to get proftp 1.30 working with encryption?
problem is the known issue with the directory-listing of the server and the current filezilla versions:

Command: LIST
Response: 150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list
Status: Server did not properly shut down TLS connection
Error: Could not read from transfer socket: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted
Response: 226 Transfer complete.
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

thanks for any hint!

Is this a known issue with ProFTP? Do you know if there’s a ProFTP bug report anywhere?

I’d be curious if it could be resolved by tweaking the ProFTP or Filezilla config – as that would be a lot simpler than trying to utilize a different ProFTP version :slight_smile:
