    Here is the problem I have. I am trying to upload a 30 MB file but always after a couple of minutes the server kills the connection. I use pureftp with the standard cpanel settings.
    Here is the error message in the log file:

    Nov 16 11:31:42 atlantis pure-ftpd[20614]: (?@12-208-32-111.client.attbi.com) [INFO] domain is now logged in
    Nov 16 11:33:23 atlantis pure-ftpd[20726]: (?@localhost) [INFO] New connection from localhost
    Nov 16 11:33:23 atlantis pure-ftpd[20726]: (?@localhost) [INFO] Logout.
    Nov 16 11:41:23 atlantis pure-ftpd[20609]: (domain@12-208-32-111.client.attbi.com) [INFO] Logout.
    Nov 16 11:41:43 atlantis pure-ftpd[20614]: (domain@12-208-32-111.client.attbi.com) [INFO] Timeout (no new data for 1800 seconds)

    As you can see the connection started at 11:31 and is killed at 11:41. But in that time my client (WS-ftp uploaded 10 MB of the 30 MB file).

    So what is going on??

    I have the same problem except my connection timeout occurs every single time once the file hits 2MB. I cant upload anything over 2MB to my server right now.

    I seem to have the same problem, but it seems to be around 5MB. Has anyone found a reason for this?

    First, make sure in the conf file, the Pasv range is uncommented, and that same range is open in your firewall.

    Second, some clients send random commands every so often during long downloads to keep the connection alive. The clients that do not do that tend to get dropped for inactivity. Try using FileZilla and see if you get the same problem.
