The error I get in Filezilla is "Cannot get directory listing". In Firefox it just keeps on loading and nothing happens. For both clients the same messages appear in proftpd.log.

ProFTPD is installed via Cygwin, although they say this is not a Cygwin issue.

I have tried adding the following entries:

IdentLookups off
UseReverseDNS off

Unfortunately it still cannot successfully provide directory listing. Apache-server via cygwin can perfectly host the same directory.
