Well kinda any how!
I am setting up a simple single project server for the office... I chose the new Fedora, and installed only the Minimum of the server systems.
The project is to get a simple, relatively low use FTP site up for data transfer between offices.
I chose the vsftp and the Fedora due to the rave reviews about the speed and the security of the pair, and for the first week it seemed that all was going well..... the file transfer to the server via a wsftp / windows system was fast and seemed very efficient..... it hit speeds of up to 6Mbps... so no real slouch.
The speed problem is from the server end!
It seems that the server has a limit of about 2000 bytes and then it goes to sleep! I can log in fine, and if the home directory is empty or nearly empty then the system flies. As soon as the directory increases in size to anything over about 15 entries, the system takes forever to give me the listing...PLUS if you get a file transfer going, the flow goes for about 2000 bytes and then changes from the gazelle that I have heard so much about to a snail....
I have turned off all firewalls (that I know of)
I have read similar postings across the web and on this site.
I have turned off the dns lookup (to the best of my knowledge)
I have tried PASV and nonPASV.
I have even done the "alis ipv6 /bin/true" thing that I found on this site....
