Getting Foscam FTP to work with vsftpd in Ubuntu

So you’ve been struggling, and you are able to login to your ftp server using filezilla, but cannot login using the foscam ftp wizard. No stress, a very simple change will sort it out – simply enable any kind of write command in /etc/vsftpd.conf and you’ll be good to go.


  1. sudo gedit /etc/vsftp.conf
  2. Uncomment the line which says write_enable = YES

Have fun ?
