    Scenario :-

    Feisty Fawn Perfect server with ispconfig installed and everything working ( after a week of jerking around) . ;)

    uploading through the ftp service is horribly slow.

    server is using port 2101 for ftp transfer ( has entry for this in proftpd.conf file. )

    I tried to set a port for passive to 2102 , but the ftp daemon refused to start on restart UNTIL i removed the line from proftpd.conf.

    I have opened port 2100 , 2101 and 2102 in the router , I cant get a decent FTP speed either through lan behind the router , or lan-wan .

    all firewalls disabled while testing ( made no difference )

    what am i doing wrong ?

    thanks ;)

    Have you tried active and passive mode, or just passive mode?

    I don't know if this will help you, but I was having the same problem and none of those suggestions above worked for me ... I found a thread somewhere which said to comment out the DefaultAddress in the /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf file like so:

    Code:
    ###################################
    #
    # ISPConfig proftpd Configuration File
    #         Version 1.0
    #
    ###################################
    # DefaultAddress 127.0.0.1
    <VirtualHost 209.40.194.6>
            DefaultRoot             ~
            AllowOverwrite          on
            Umask                   002
    </VirtualHost>
    That worked for me.

    I did exactly the same (try&check way; SLES10SP1, ISPConfig 2.2.18, ProFTPD 1.3.1) - one note - have to change proftpd master file - create template with "DefaultAddress" commented out to prevent overwrite by ISPConfig.

    BTW, checked again and i had to tell proftpd which ports to use with passive mode (for example: PassivePorts 19000 19200) and open them on firewall (/etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2).
