I have been able to set up a SFTP server using vsftpdvsftpd on ubuntuUbuntu 14.04.

However, however I want to experiment with plain (unencrypted) FTP, I want to see the unencrypted packets using wiresharkwireshark. 

To set up the sftpSFTP server I followed this guide, - it is composed of two sections,: the first is for plain FTP, the second for SFTP, this is my understanding. 

I managed to get SFTP working, but not plain FTP. Filezilla returns an error, when tryingI try to connect using plain FTP, saying:  

Response:       SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.2p2 Ubuntu-6ubuntu0.4
Error:  Cannot establish FTP connection to an SFTP server. Please select proper protocol.
Error:  Critical error
Error:  Could not connect to server

It returns this message, although I have removed and purged vsftpdvsftpd and reinstalled it, then made configuration of the first section only. So I ask if vsftpd supports

Does vsftpd support plain FTP and if does, how todo I apply it.?
