In have a new VM installation with at the moment just one virtual server. If I try to use ftp (running proftpd on server) it takes between 30 and 40 seconds to respond to any command.
ftp> open ftp.iimco.co.uk Connected to ftp.iimco.co.uk. 220 FTP Server ready. 500 AUTH not understood 500 AUTH not understood KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type Name (ftp.iimco.co.uk:root): iimco.co 331 Password required for iimco.co. Password: 230 User iimco.co logged in. Remote system type is UNIX. Using binary mode to transfer files. ftp> ls
Then either the client times out or eventually, after 30 to 45 seconds, produces the list.
The delay causes most GUI ftp clients to timeout but using Konqueror on KDE/FC4 does work.
Similarly if I do a file upload of multiple files there is a long delay between each file. It is not caused on the client PC because I can use exactly the same process with a different proftpd server which does not delay.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to the reason? pleeease Richard
