ftp bloody slow... and a few questions...


I setted up vsftpd, at first it was super fast, now it's bloody slow. the directory listing takes like 5 minutes. I also noticed it is not secure, I just have to CD up, and I can access the entire computer.

Also, how do I set other shared folders for a user and individually set permissions (read, listing, write, upload, delete, make dir etc)? The only thing I figured out how to do is setup a linux user and put it under the ftp group and set the home directory to wherever, but I'm sure it's not limited to that, is it?

Thanks.

bump, hopefully someoen can figure this out, this slowness is really ennoying. I already have enough other problems to try and figure out... I hardly played with samba yet, to think that's going to be the hardest part.

First of all, like our rules indicate, don't bump threads until after 24 hours has passed by without a reply.

And the slowness, have you tried to toggle passive on and off on the client side? That's usually what causes slow FTP.

And if you don't want a user to see the whole directory listing or tree, chroot them to their home directory.

Regards.
