SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1



When configuring passive ports for pure-ftpd using the YaST2 FTP module (yast2 ftp-server) the settings are correctly written to /etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf. However, if yast2 ftp-server is started later again, the settings for the maximum port number does not match the settings from the configuration file and YaST2 reports
Condition for ports is max port > min port.

when trying to exit the module.


Please update to yast2-ftp-server- or later.
