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:
* 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?
