Well, you don't need to install vsftpd to connect by sftp...
sftp is included in ssh.
However, is it possible to access files via ftp but not sftp?
I am always getting errors when connecting via ftp, no matter vsftpd under linux or IIS/filezilla ftp server...
This does not seem to work for me as well. I am using Ubuntu server, I have set passive mode, but is not able to retrieve the directory list.
I was able to get this to work by adding an endpoint to tcp 22 and connecting via sftp.
