    Hello all,

    I'm beginning to get complaints about ftp connection timeouts. I'd like to increase the number of concurrent ftp connections allowed.

    Being from an Alabanza background, I know that the way to do that on their servers is to edit /etc/inetd.conf and add the following line:

    ftp stream tcp nowait.256 root /usr/local/sbin/proftpd proftpd

    How would I do this on a cpanel server?

    Thanks,

    Larry

    /etc/proftpd.conf

    the &MaxClients& setting.

    Craig.

    excellent!

    Thanks, I've done this and restarted proftpd.

    I did notice that the comment above the maxclient setting said the following:

    # Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins

    Is this only for anonymous connections, or will it cover all connections?

    I have a nerdy client base and they're constantly tweaking their sites.

    Thanks!

    Larry
