    awful.... what I see here in the statisic. 380 GB wasted
    by massdownloader-softwares.

    how can plesk avoid FTP-massdownloading?

    https://www.mydomainname.tld:8443/

    --> domains ---> mydomain.tld ---> Anonymous FTP

    I am able there to limit the bandwith-speed for such
    users. Switched just now to 40 KB/s.

    I am able to limit the simultaneous connections to 100.

    But if a user use a massdownloader-software - which runs
    onto the _same_ one IP-number - then Plesk allows this
    user such a massdownloading with 20 connections over
    the same ip-number at the same time. :(

    I thought, the " simultaneous connections to 100." is for
    100 different users with their 100 different ip-numbers.

    how can I make this Plesk clear, that ONE user with his
    ONE ip-number is only allowed to use ONE connection?

    thank you very much

    Nope, this has to do with how ProFTPd works. It means it will allow up to a total of 100 connections (from any IP or all from same IP) to your server.

    ProFTPd Userguide:
    http://www.proftpd.org/localsite/Userguide/linked/userguide.html

    ProFTPd FAQs:
    http://www.proftpd.org/docs/faq/linked/faq.html

    ProFTPd Example configs:
    http://www.proftpd.org/docs/example-conf.html

    Due to the way the Plesk firewall interface is setup, you may want to try the following instead:

    Configure proFTPd (per their docs) to implement <VirtualHost...> with MaxClients; MaxClientsPerHost; MaxClientsPerUser.

    Especially the MaxClientsPerUser, see details:
    http://www.proftpd.org/docs/directives/linked/config_ref_MaxClientsPerUser.html

    And MaxHostsPerUser:
    http://www.proftpd.org/docs/directives/linked/config_ref_MaxHostsPerUser.html

    And MaxClientsPerHost:
    http://www.proftpd.org/docs/directives/linked/config_ref_MaxClientsPerHost.html

    If you switch to a different firewall, there are bound to be other ways to keep the abusers from abusing....
