    Slow FTP Logins and now I can't go up directories

    Hi There,

    I just noticed today (yesterday everything worked fine) that my logins as a site adminstrator for any and all sites is very slow. I mean like 30 seconds to login and the server is setup here on the local network. Yesterday it took 2 seconds. Once logged it everything works at a normal pace.

    When logging in SSH it also takes 30+ seconds for me to see the password prompt. The USER prompt I see right away.

    Also, when I login to the site adminstrators personal directory /users/myname, I am unable to go up directories and it says that it can't find /home/sites

    If i login directly to the /web directory, then i can get around just fine and move around without and issues.

    Any advice?

    Figured it out....

    It seemed to be a problem with the DNS. I changed my DNS entries (on the Raq) to a complete different set and the FTP logins were flawless again.

    Not sure why that did it, but it did for those others wondering.

    Everything works fine om my raqs, but lately the ftp connection has been a little slow. 10 sec to connect i think.

    Both servers with that problem ar used as dns servers, so i would like to know what you did to the records to solve the problem?

    I had the DNS set as one of the local ISPs here in town (where I usually have my servers co-located - right now this server is inhouse on the local network). Then i changed the DNS to that of my inhouse DSL provider and it worked fine.

    Well, another solution, edit /etc/proftpd.conf
    look for the <Global> section and add the following lines, like:

    IdentLookups off
    UseReverseDNS off
    Hmm, what does this do... Oops!
