Recently a few users on a Virtualmin server have experienced issues with slow FTP logins. It took a long time to login and often wouldn’t log in at all.
To correect this, first log on to the Webmin interface on http://yourserver:10000. At the top left, click Webmin.
A bit further down, under Servers, select ProFTPD Server.
Under Global Configuration, select the Networking icon.
Then you’ll see a screen with a whole bunch of settings. Set the following options to No:
- Set Lookup remote Ident username?
- Do reverse DNS lookups of client addresses?
Now click save, and on the ProFTPd page press Apply settings on the bottom. Your logins should now be instant.
