Directory listing in FTP gives timeout
« on: June 27, 2018, 04:48:59 PM »
I am host a website in the server with Cent OS and used CWP as the web hosting software. The website is working fine. I noticed that when listing the files in server through FTP i get the timeout most of the time. The error received in Filezilla is

Code: [Select]
Error:  Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error:  Failed to retrieve directory listing

Apart from ftp all looks fine at the time of error. Checked my and server's internet connection and it was good. I don't have any private IP configured in the server, server is directly connected to public IP.

Steps followed:
  • Restarted FTP server
  • Checked by connecting in passive as well as active FTP connections
  • Checked the server firewall by disabling it
  • Restarted server
  • Enabled all ports in the server
  • I also tried by creating another FTP user and problem didn't solve

I am not facing this problem every time i connect to the server but most of the time error comes.

How can i check the cause of the problem and solve?

CWP7 + CSF enabled?
