Unhappy VSFTP connection closed by remote server


I am using VSFTPD as my FTP server, and have been experiencing problems. I have tried various FTP clients, and I get similar errors with all of them.

What happens is that I will start to upload some files, usually around 5mb. After about 5-8 minutes (about 1-2 mb of 50 files transferred), SmartFTP comes up with the error, "An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine.". I searched the error on google with no avail. Does anyone know what could be wrong, or what I should do?

Thanks in advance.

"An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine."
"User-friendly" error messages don't help troubleshooting errors: it's better to post the errors from the client-side application log (window) and the server-side daemon log.

may be you start your vsftp false. how install you your vsftp server
from sourve code or rpm dep ???

it is also posible that you have a bad connetion to your server
ping your server a long time
look it if your connecction was brocked to ftpserver

you can configure your vsftp server so that it hold the session live longer.
default it is so configureted if the connection die only for 2-3 second you have upload the file agein.

check this option in your vsftpd.conf
idle_session_timeout=1600

My vsftpd log seems to be empty (/var/log/vsftpd.log). kara lahana, I compiled from source, and I do not have any line like that in my vsftpd conf file. I just added the line you gave me. I will let you know if it works. My current vsftpd.conf looks like this:

Quote:
anonymous_enable=NO
chroot_local_user=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
dirmessage_enable=YES
listen=YES
local_enable=YES
local_umask=022
pam_service_name=vsftpd
tcp_wrappers=YES
userlist_enable=NO
write_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
xferlog_std_format=YES
idle_session_timeout=1600

Unfortunately, that did not work. I am still getting an error after a few minutes. What else should I check/do?
