Meu Conectiva 9.0 tem o proftpd-1.2.7 instalado. Quando dou start no servico ele parece funcionar sem problemas, mas ao tentar conectar acontece

# ftp 0
Connected to 0.
500 FTP server shut down (Maintanance in progress) -- please try again later.

O servico continua ativo

# ps ax | grep proftpd
3819 ? S 0:00 [proftpd]

A minha configuracao eh padrao.
