Large FTP Transfers Hanging CentOS
I've got a server running CentOS 5.5. I used the automated iptables config tool included in the operating system to allow traffic for vsftpd, Apache and UnrealIRCd.
When I send large files to FTP, even from the local network, it works fine for a while and then completely times out... on everything. IRC disconnects, FTP can't find it and when I try to ping it I get "Reply from 10.1.10.134: Destination host unreachable" where ..134 is the host address for the Win7 box I'm pinging from.
This is especially frustrating as it's a headless server, and as I can't SSH into it to reboot I'm forced to resort to the reset switch on the front, which I really don't like doing.
I am completely at a loss why it would do this, and don't even know where to begin looking for a cause. Anyone have any thoughts?
Edit: Thought I'd mention, the timeouts are global, across all machines both on the local network and users connecting in from outside.
