    I have an issue with my FTP.

    I might have played around a little with the configuration due to passive ftp.

    But now when i start it all seems to work but i am only allowed to have 1 user logged in.

    This is the startup parameters of pure-ftpd-mysql when i restart it (all is done in configuration files)

    Restarting ftp server: Running: /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd-mysql-virtualchroot -l mysql:/etc/pure-ftpd/db/mysql.conf -l pam -P -C 5 -u 1000 -A -E -O clf:/var/log/pure-ftpd/transfer.log -p 40100:40101 -D -b -c 10 -B

    What i have been reading is that the -C 5 means 5 concurrent users from same IP, but somewhere i lost the max number of clients also which should be the -c 10 (10 users)

    Please help, it is driving me nuts...

    Did you try both active and passive FTP?

    Is this a physical server or a virtual machine?

    I had the same issue when I added the passive FTP configuration file.

    I found that by increasing the port range from just two ports to say ten then it allowed me to have five users connected at the same time and this was reflected in the message displayed on connection:

    Response: 220-You are user number 1 of 5 allowed

    It seemed to need two ports per user and for me this solved the issue.
