Description of problem:
While logging in ftpd. The connect with the ftp was made, but a timeout occurs
before the username/password are checked and the rest of the loginprocedure is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Dell PowerEdge out of the box - Linux preinstalled
2.activate wu-ftpd and activate network
3.try to log into the ftpd.
Actual Results: ftp-client makes connect with ftpd. timeout occurs and after
that the rest of the login-procedure commences;
Expected Results: No wait-time during logging into a ftpd;
Done this on different machines (all Dell - Redhat)
They all have the same problem.
The server (one of the) with the problem:
188.8.131.52 (gloveg.vgt.vito.be or gloveg.vegetation.be)
99.99% of all wu-ftpd timeout problems are related to a broken DNS setup that doesn't
allow the server to do reverse lookups.
Is the server configured correctly to do reverse lookups? (e.g. do you get any results
when running "host 184.108.40.206" on the server?)
I tried the host command on the ftp server (220.127.116.11 - gloveg.vgt.vito.be)
and on our 2 nameservers (18.104.22.168/cat.vgt.vito.be and
22.214.171.124/ctivdns.vgt.vito.be) And in all the cases I received the
www.redhad.com als result. (The cat.vgt.vito.be is an older version with OS
True64 Unix 4.0E - there I did nslookup)
The subnet masks of all 3 systems is 255.255.255.224 (they are in the same
subnet = My DMZ)
I have this on all my Dell boxes with redhat. I already installed the version
of wu-ftpd of the people.redhad.com/mgahagan version 2.6.1-20. And this had no
result. Still had the wait time between the connect and the actual login.
Please use vsftpd, wu-ftpd is not maintained anymore.
