    Hi all,

    I need your advice and help ! I have customers that need to store and transfer large files. When they do so it knocks down my server :( . What i would like to know how to do and to know if possible:

    - Limit number of connections to a file
    - Limit resource to file downloads ( bandwith, etc.. )
    - Is it better to have customers use anon ftp instead ? less resources are used ?!
    - Disable memory caching of larger files than x MB ...

    If you have any other suggestions please send them in, if you know any of the things above please help!!! =)

    Regards,
    jspilon

    What problems do you experience? High bandwidth or many processes?

    You should check using the following ProFTPD control directives (/etc/proftpd.conf)
    Complete docs at:
    http://www.proftpd.org/docs/directives/linked/by-name.html

    I don't believe that using Anonymous would gain you any noticeable amount on resources.

    Also I would not use a Celeron CPU, except on a test server...
