Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am troubleshooting a proftpd server which seems to work perfectly except that after the USER command it hangs for quite a bit without doing anything after which it connects.

Every other connect after that is quite fluent until I close my ftp client and let it closed for 5 minutes.

I already dissabled reverse lookup.

Anyone any clue ?

I use mod_unix_auth.c for authenticating

Hi Lucas, did you install proftpd as standalone or inetd ? –  Wadih M. Nov 18 '11 at 1:25
Enable debugging to see what it say. –  quanta Nov 18 '11 at 1:31
