ftp problem with uploading big files (update:solved)

Hi. I have problem to upload bigest (longer then 2 MB) files to ma vsftpd server. Transfer start, but after it finish (all bites are OK) it hangs in my client a doesnt proces next one file. I have to deconnect from ftp and connect again to send another one file. The first one is OK. Firewall is OFF and the same behavior is with proftpd and vsftpd on my slackware 10 server. I have dsl line on my server, but my ISP give me a public IP thru cisco router. Thanks for help

I had trouble like that ftp'ing to my isps webspace using GFTP. The problem turned out to be 'passive file transfers'.

Just checked here

Set to NO if you want to disallow the PASV method of obtaining a data connection.

Default: YES "

Try adjusting that in /etc/vsftpd.conf maybe?

problem solved

Thanks for starting me up with passive connection. But problem was solved with port_enable=NO directive in my vsftpd.conf. It means that my ftp server doesnt allow use PORT command. My clients always disconnect after they try use this command. Thanks onceagain. Joe
