how to circumvent RDA password prompt on startup
« on: February 13, 2008, 03:37:49 pm »
Hi!

I'm using Ubuntu 6.10 and  ProFTPD Version 1.3.0.

When I start my server using the TLS module and a certificate I created for my local machine I get the following password prompt:

Code: [Select]
* Starting ftp server proftpd ubuntu - 127.0.1.1:21 masquerading as 87.*.*.*

Please provide passphrases for these encrypted certificate keys:
RSA key for the 127.0.1.1#21 (myFtp) server:

This is ok when I start it manually, but as I have added my proftpd to init.d to make it start automatically it seems like the server never starts. I am not 100% sure this is the problem, but starting proftpd in the same way as the system does, i.e.:

> invoke-rc.d proftpd start

proftpd starts fine (as long as I provide the right RSA password).

Any ideas on how to make proftpd start automatically without any password prompt on boot?

Regards,

 d

Ah... doh! I only digged through the tls-faq for an answer to that :)

Thanks a lot!
