    I have a problem with the configuration of my FTP Service so after searching I came here.

    I just want to limit the max. filesize transfered with FTP to something like 10MB.

    Now with pureFTPd I found that it is a bit hard because it has no function for that and proFTPd uses more memory and has less performance.

    So has anyone an idea on how to do that?

    I really need your help here.

    Have you looked at /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

    # Enable virtual quotas. The first number is the max number of files.
    # The second number is the max size of megabytes.
    # So 1000:10 limits every user to 1000 files and 10 Mb.

    #Quota 1000:10

    I am not sure it that means 10MB for file or 10MB total
