Hi Bob,

	Just to put all this in perspective, i'm not a "green" on CentOS and i 
restarted vsftpd each time i modified my test server (it's very ok that 
you asked!).  I don't consider myself an expert but i'm pretty 
confortable with CentOS.

	I can reach easily the server by regular FTP, check my previously 
posted config file and you'll see that i don't force local users to use 
SSL.  For the remote users, i'll redirect port 990 on our firewall to 
port 21 on the server.  I read that vsftpd can't use different ports for 
regular FTP and FTPS so i let it be on port 21, which we use internally.
