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

So some of our users are having issues uploading files via FTP. One file is 240MB once it reaches 100% it hangs there and still says its uploading for around 20-30 minutes sometimes an hour before it actually says its completed.

We have tried multiple FTP Clients with the same results.

We are running CentOS 5.5.

Any ideas?

Update: We are using pure ftpd:
Here is what the FTP logs say for the file being uploaded: Wed May 02 11:13:35 2012 1560 230573924 /home/{DOMAIN}/public_html/temp4/SenateDebateb.zip b _ i r temp4@inkbarreltv.com ftp 1 * c Wed May 02 12:47:40 2012 0 0 /home/{DOMAIN}/public_html/temp4/SenateDebateb.zip b _ i r temp4@inkbarreltv.com ftp 1 * c

Which ftp daemon are you using ? Are there any relevant messages in your logs . –  Iain May 2 '12 at 18:02
try to switch off PASV mode –  Dmitri Chubarov May 2 '12 at 18:04
Monitor network traffic - best way to see what's going on. It could be an issue on either end... maybe your server isn't sending a response back to the client. –  Eli Sand May 2 '12 at 18:52
