    Up uptil a week ago, everything was fine using latest at that time WHM 5.x with proftpd 1.2.4 but this week i decided to change over from normal FTP connections to Secure FTP connections via cuteftp pro 2.0

    at first it worked, then now whenever i upload a small or large file via sftp or regular ftp, the transfer timesout :(

    i did a traceroute from my pc to my server it it all looks fine no packet loss at all.....

    how can i diagnose a slow ftp uploading problem ?

    top part of my /etc/proftpd.conf file contains

    Code:
    # This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to 
    DisplayConnect /etc/issue.net
    DisplayConnect /etc/issue.net
    # 'proftpd.conf' for actual use.  It establishes a single server
    # and a single anonymous login.  It assumes that you have a user/group
    # "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.
    
    ServerName                      "ProFTPD"
    AuthUserFile /etc/proftpd/passwd.vhosts
    LogFormat BytesLog "%b"
    ServerType                      standalone
    DeferWelcome                    off
    DefaultServer                   on
    DefaultRoot ~ !wheel
    
    TimeoutLogin 1800
    TimeoutIdle 1800
    TimeoutNoTransfer 1800
    TimeoutStalled 7800
    
    # Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
    Port                            21
    # Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
    # from being group and world writable.
    Umask                           022
    
    # Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
    User                            nobody
    Group proftpd
    
    # Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
    <Directory />
      AllowOverwrite                on
    </Directory>

    Check your /etc/resolv.conf and make sure the listed servers are correct.

    Hello,

    We're having the same problem. The connection speed is just fine, but uploads timeout. Normally (even yesterday) I could upload files to the server with speed around 50-70kb/s but today when I tried to upload, the speed started at about 20kb/s and slowly went down until reaching 0kb/s and stopping in the middle of the upload! I've ran traceroutes and even checked /etc/resolv.conf and everything seems to be just fine.

    Any ideas?

    :confused:

    Same here! I see low throughput when uploading via FTP.
