Idle Timeout

Postby andrewe » Tue Mar 04, 2008 8:04 pm

Hi

Firstly, I'd like to say that CrossFTP Server works very well, so thank you.

I have one problem though. Users don't get disconnected automatically. The server seems to ignore the idle timeout setting on my system. One person who connects to me must use some funny software because every time they download a file, it reconnects without closing the previous connection, so it ends up filling up the connections list. I've changed the maximum to 1,000 to help, but that's not a very good workaround. Have I missed something? The old connections are idle, so should be disconnected automatically shouldn't they?

Cheers,
Andrew.

Idle time out should work if the client did not issue any command during the connection. It is probably the client still issues some anti-idle command so that the connection did not disconnected.
One way to solve this problem is that, you can limit single user's connection number by setting the Max. Login from Same IP at the User panel. Or you can suggest the user to change his client.

I have these same problem as andrewe.
Idle time out should work if the client did not issue any command during the connection

If I good understand it set set up by:
config.connection-manager.timeout-poll-interval=1
what set timeout to one second. Even if I put this line to config file it doesn't work. Is this config option work, or I made some mistake?

It seems strange since the system will close the socket when the timeout comes. Will check the routine on this aspect again. Thanks for the information.

to generate that scenario repetitive, client should unconnect in a dirty way after server send comunicate: '227 Entering Passive Mode'

The command I need to know if it functions is the MLST command, which was proposed in RFC 3659.
When you are logged in type "quote mlst" at the prompt and see if you get a more verbose listing of the directory. If "quote mlst *" gives you a verbose
