I am using Pure-FTPD on a Cpanel Server.
When i try to connect with FTP Client, i get connected to the server, the authentication takes place all fine but nothing gets listed from the FTP Server.
errors like this come up
Error: Transfer channel can't be opened. Reason: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
I have searched on the internet for lots of things and it says about timeout values on the client , passive/active mode.. and I have tried everything ,but yet the problem occurs.
I also have APF on the server isntalled. So i thought it could have been a firewall issue, so once i restart/stop firewall ( APF or IPtables ) or just flush them, the FTP starts working for few hours and again goes back to same state.
What could be the problem?
I have similiar configuration of server and the firewall in my other servers and they seem to work fine.
