ISPC3 - pure-ftpd
Till & Falko,

I noticed that when I would try to connect to my ISPC3 webserver via FTP using windows explorer the connection would drop before I could log on and the error I received is "The FTP session was terminated". For the first week or so I thought that pure-ftpd was broken and so I proceeded to reinstall it. Of course that didn't work. I later found out that I could log on using ftp://username@domain.tld/. After doing a little research I found out that technically Windows & Internet Explorer are 'broken' FTP clients and in order to fix this issue I had to have pure-ftpd start with the -b flag. It isn't real obvious in Debian on how to configure this but I finally found how.


echo yes > /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/BrokenClientsCompatibility
/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart

Does this need to be added to the bugtracker for ISPC3?

Yes, please add it to the bugtracker. This sould either be built into the installer or mentioned in the installation instructions.
