Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457280
Perform unidirectional SSL/TLS shutdown on data connections
Last modified: 2009-01-02 10:26:18 EST
A recent release of the FileZilla FTP client triggered this issue. ProFTPd
needs to handle SSL shutdown in data connections somewhat differently. See:
There is a patch available for ProFTPd 1.3.1 and I have tested it briefly and it
appears to address the issue. My SRPM is available here:
For those who need a quick solution.
I am hoping ProFTPd will release this shortly "officially", but if not perhaps
this patch could be considered for inclusion in 1.3.1-5 (I guess 1.3.1-4 still
has never been released).
Hi Matthias. I encountered another issue with mod_tls that caused the daemon to crash in certain situations when SIGHUP's were sent. This was causing the server to die whenever logrotate ran (definitely not a good thing). ProFTPD came up with a patch for me, and my updated version is here:
This includes both the patch for the SSL shutdown issue mentioned above as well as the fix for the SIGHUP issue.
The SIGHUP issue upstream bz is:
Do you have time to take a look at this and perhaps do a release? If not, let me know -- I'd be happy to co-maintain this package.
Any progress on new rpms? My clients are still complaining about filezilla not working with my servers.
I've contacted Matthias to see if he'd like to do a co-maintain on this package. You can use my SRPM above if you like in the interim.
I've tested and included all 3 patches in the updated proftpd packages which should be pushed to all current branches shortly. Note that I've put 1.3.2rc3 on devel, which normally already includes these fixes.
