FTP Disconnects (Timeout?)

    Been having this trouble for a while now - and I thought it was just my client - but it turns out that all of my customers are having some difficultly uploading/downloading to/from their site using FTP. (Plesk Unloaded 7.5.4)

    After about 30 seconds into a transfer, the server disconnects the client. 've checked in xferlog - nothing wierd. I couldn't find a log file for the ftp server itself.

    Anybody else having the same problem?

    Do you have an actual fix for this.. The link to your forum seems to be user only.

    Have you looked at your proftp.conf file? You might try to turn off "UseReverseDNS"....

    I'm not to sure what you need though... hope this helps...

    Bandurao's suggestion was to make sure my /etc/xinetd.d/ftp_psa file was as follows:

    service ftp
    disable = no
    socket_type = stream
    protocol = tcp
    wait = no
    user = root
    instances = UNLIMITED
    server = /usr/sbin/in.proftpd
    server_args = -c /etc/proftpd.conf

    and it was identical to that - so that's not it.
    Also, it looks as if my ReverseDNS is also off.

    Last couple of days Bandurao is spamming the forum with these links. Maybe we should tell him this is not appropriate :)

    Maybe check the NIC for errors with "ifconfig -a"

    Anything in the logs? I would check /var/log/messages

    I think you can put the ftp daemon in debug mode and then watch it or tail the log while you do a transfer and it might give you better clues.
