vsftpd was automatically installed onto my Ubuntu server to allow FTPES connections by some auto installer script I ran. How can I enable it to auto accept normal FTP connections as well? Is this possible?

Is there some configuration changes that can be made to /etc/vsftpd.conf ?

I should have googled more and looked at the vsftpd man pages

I needed to edit /etc/vsftpd.conf and set force_local_data_ssl and force_local_logins_ssl to false. and then restart with sudo service vsftpd restart
