Having problems with proftpd on Solaris 11 and wondering if anyone else has noticed this?
The clients are Windows & filezilla!
I have not changed any settings and just started svc:/network/ftp:default and I have noticed I am getting a lot of timeouts on file transfers. Getting this a lot on NFS (ZFS with ACLs) file systems and even on local file systems (less often, but fails when transfer many files).
What makes it worst is that the file starts to be written to disk but with size 0 and after the timeout filezilla starts again and a popup appears saying file exists??
I am getting over it by switching off "passive mode" in /etc/proftpd.conf and then it works fine!
# Disable Extended Passive mode
<Limit EPSV PASV>
And before any ones asks no firewalls on network or client!
Strange think is that I just tried a Solaris 11.1 system and it works with out any problem.
So something has been fixed in Solaris 11.1.
It is the same version of proftpd so I guess something has changed else where to help with my problem.
Anyway, will do some more testing before upgrading my FTP server, but it looks like good news.
