I have been trying to find out why the root is banning for too many connections.
I get
Banned the following ip addresses on Thu Dec 8 22:20:01 CST 2011

xxx.xxx.xxx.x with 172 connections

Where can i raise that number? I am using pureftp. The location is slipping my mind.

Thanks

That's from a non-cPanel 3rd party software called DDoS Deflate. Check /usr/local/ddos/ddos.conf and increase the "NO_OF_CONNECTIONS" setting.
