    Hi i recently installed ISPConfig on centos 6.2 all was fine and working as expected, until yesterday i tried to connect using sftp. I had connection timed out errors and i could no more connect using filezilla unless i change the connection time out to more than 60 seconds.

    P.S : i can connect to ssh using the terminal without any delay. and i used the terminal sftp client and it ran smoothly. also i changed the ssl recently.

    Please check syslog and messages log for errors.

    You posted above some records from pure-ftpd. But SFTP is not a FTP protocol, it is a ssh protocoll, this is often mixed up. So the SFTP connectivity is provided by the ssh daemon and not by the ftp daemon and it requires a ssh user for login and not a FTP user. If you wnat to use secure FTP, then the protocol is named FTPS (with the S at teh end of the name).
