FTP time-outs during uploading

    My clients and myself are experiencing FTP time-outs during the upload of (for example) lot's of (small) files. The transfer just stops then.

    System is running Fedora Core 1 with newest Plesk and ProFTPd.

    Please help.

    This is really getting a serious problem now, for me and my customers.

    Please somebody look into this.

    When i upload a lot of files (like a Mambo or Gallery distribution) .. the transfer sometimes just STOPS / hangs.

    It hangs on a ftp 'STOR' command.

    I've experienced this problem since version 5 of Plesk and it is still happening.

    Hey Guys,
    Have you tweaked your /etc/proftpd.conf file yet? How long does it initially take to log in to your ftp?

    Best Regards,

    Since i placed the 'Identlookups Off ' directive in it ... the login has no delay. It just logs in right away.

    Time-outs are set at 1800 ... (for testing).

    I doubt it is a setting in proftpd.conf.

    Are you sure it isn't the ISP you are behind? Try turning on Passive mode and see if that helps.

    Nope that doesn't help.

    Neither does it help when i plug my computer direct into the cable-modem (disconnecting router).

    Multiple customers are experiencing this problem .. so it can't be my ISP's fault (unless all ISP's are doing wrong .. but i doubt that).

    Roadrunner is one of the biggest ISP's that do that to discourage file shareing software (napster type stuff)

    For us its only certian customers with certian ISP's that are the problem

    I am starting to think that it could be a 'problem' with my ISP (@Home Netherlands).

    I am currently uploading via another ISP .. and i have uploaded a complete Mambo distribution for about 8 times now .. without a single problem.

    Maybe my ISP has some lag or whatever it may be called.

    Do you guys (who are experiencing the same problem) all use Windows XP SP2 by any chance ?

    I, too, am having this problem. I'm running on SuSE 9.2, and my connection is RoadRunner... I've been looking for proftpd logs, but can't find any...

    I am, and getting this issue also a few others who host with me have reported the issue also. Not sure on what they are running client side for an OS. The server is 7.1.6 and FreeBSD 4.9

    I only experience this problem when using mget with prompting off.. If I turn on prompting and just keep hitting 'y' I don't have the issue. Of course, I don't know how to do that in an ftp client that anyone else may be using, I'm doing it off the command line, but it may help narrow the issue some (?)...
