Hello,

What FTP client are you using - FileZilla for example?

There are retry and time out settings available in this client.

This link has some useful FileZilla network configuration help:
http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Network_Configuration


Have you tried another connection mode ie. active (PORT) instead of passive (PASV)?

The link below may save you some time perhaps. :)

Are there any clues for your time out error in these Google Search Results especially those results from the proFTPD forum.

There seems to be a debug log file that may give more clues - sorry, no Linux box, so not sure where to look for that file but I see links to a how to in the above proFTPD forum results.
http://www.proftpd.org/docs/howto/Debugging.html

Also if you are connecting through a router then there are also tips in the above FileZilla forum results.

Make sure that it is not a firewall blocking issue that may be relevant to your connection mode mentioned above.

Good luck and best wishes. :)

In Proftpd the default timeout for idle connections is 5 min (300 sec). If you need to increase it you can add:
TimeoutNoTransfer 3600
TimeoutIdle 3600
to your proftpd.conf file (time represented in seconds).
