    I (and a number of my clients) are having problems uploading via FTP to the server of any files over about 2-4mb, it returns a fatal error message and retrires, but never succeeds. This started with the upgrade to 8.0. Have checked all of the ProFTP settings, have extended timeout to 30mins, nothing, always kills.

    This also is the same on Anon FTP site. Downloads are not affeced.

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem, or is it unique to my server?

    Proftp upload problems

    I had a similar issue, although it was only happening with Mac OS X users. The fix turned out to be disabling the mod_delay functionality of proftp. This module is designed to thwart intruders by making it unclear whether an ftp login tried by the intruder is good or not. It's a nice feature, but not essential. It apparently doesn't play well with Macs.

    To disable it, just add the line

    DelayEngine off

    to the /etc/proftpd.conf file and restart xinet.d. Fixed all our issues.
