Linux – ProFTPD DisplayLogin not showing


In my config I have set DisplayLogin to /etc/welcome.msg and inside welcome.msg set a welcome message and saved it. I then restart the ProFTPD service, go to connect via FileZilla and the message is not shown at all.

All I get is:

Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Initializing TLS...
Status: Verifying certificate...
Status: TLS connection established.
Status: Logged in
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Status: Directory listing of "/home/UserName" successful

The file permission for the welcome.msg is 0644. I tried to search on Google but found nothing on this.

  • FileZilla does not display the FTP welcome message.

    Actually many GUI FTP clients do not.
