Description Ray Van Dolson 2008-07-30 16:38:05 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Ray Van Dolson 2008-09-03 16:29:30 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Matthias Saou 2009-01-02 15:26:18 UTC
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.
